Latest gallery features 4x4s at Lahti: our best and brightest

Richard Rubenis of the Telford AC may have been the shortest M35 sprinter at Lahti. But he must have felt 9 feet tall after anchoring Britain to the 4×4 gold medal at the world masters championships this month. The love he got from his mates, shown in my latest photo gallery, says it all about this meet: serious fun, joyful exhaustion. Pride and pain. I focused mainly on Americans in this gallery — all about the 4x4s — but also feature the M70 and W45 world record quartets from Germany (with my heroes Guido Müller and Annette Koop).  The gamut of emotions of the long-sprint relays also is reflected in the faces of emotional Brits and patriotic Americans. Check it out, and use the slide-show function. Write me if you’d like a high-resolution image.
