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 44 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 relaysalso 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.
