Michelsohn’s magical distance-record tour continues
Marie-Louise Michelsohn, in warmer weather this time, has bagged another W65 world record, she reports. This one was over 3,000 meters Sunday at the New York Relays at Icahn Stadium, where her 12:09.65 shaved nearly eight seconds from the listed age-group record of 12:17.49 by Germany’s Lydia Ritter in June 2004. It was M-L’s second WR in two weeks and fifth of the season. On April 7, she brought down another German’s 10K record. Writes Marie-Louise: “I must say I’m having fun.” Meet results online are still to come.
