Millrose Games to feature geezer sprinters (but only ex-NFL)
An exhibition 60-meter race at the Millrose Games, just announced by USATF, “is expected to feature” M45 superstar Willie Gault, almost M35 Tim Dwight and M30 David Tyree. Why these folks? I guess they have some kind of pro football connection. But then why stop there? What about NFL Hall of Famer James Lofton? Or Phil McConkey, a Super Bowl legend? Or Billy “White Shoes” Johnson? All three have been regulars on the masters track circuit. As long as the masters sprint exhibition at Millrose has to be ex-NFL, might as well invite these others. In any case, best of luck to Willie. The M45 WR is 6.97. It’s yours for the taking.
