Olympic relay champ Bruny Surin targeting M40 indoor best?
This needs to be verified. But a posting on a Canadian track message board says: “Hey everyone, There is going to be a mens 50m invitational at Mcgill on December 5th. It will be a straight final only, if you’re interested to run it, send me a msg. 2 time World Indoor Champion Bruny Surin will be racing in his first time since retirement with plans of breaking the Canadian 50m Masters Record. Personal best for 60m 6.45 Personal best for 50m 5.64.” Bruny, a Haitian-born sprinter who was on Canada’s 4×1 team that beat USA fair and square at the Atlanta Games, turned 42 last July. McGill University indeed has a Dec. 5 meet scheduled. And Bruny has a blog, but he hasn’t updated it since March. And it’s in some foreign language. Can’t tell if he’s been running. WMA doesn’t list a world record for 50 meters. The Canadian M40 record for 50 meters is listed as 6.20. Stay tuned.
