Everad Samuels shatters M50 world record for 200m
Mike Travers reports this stunning performance: “Everad Samuels of Boston … has broken the M50 200M World record of 22.58 set by Dr. Stephen Peters (of Britain at the Puerto Rico world masters meet in 2003). Everad’s record time of 22.53 was set Saturday, July 5, at the USATF East Region Open and Club Track and Field Championships in Valatie, NY. (Results are here.) The paperwork is being processed by meet officials.” That also betters the listed American record of 22.79 by Houston’s Bill Collins in April 2002.
