Marathoner Wieciorkowska sets W45 record for 800
Former marathoner Zofia Wieciorkowska, a Polish native who lives in Connecticut, tonight broke the W45 world indoor record for 800 meters, according to a report from the New York Armory and the New York Road Runners Club’s “Thursday Night at the Races“ meet. Zofia is said to have clocked 2:16.3, hand-timed. If confirmed, it smashes the listed age-group indoor record of 2:18.16 by Sweden’s Karin WГҐhlstedt in March 2007. This would mean that she just turned 45, since she was listed as 44 when she ran the Hartshorne mile a few weeks back in 5:08.95. Zofia was the W40 European masters outdoor champion in 2007 in the 1500. She’s a former Polish national teamer.
