Records by the dozen: Weia Reinboud notches her latest HJ mark
W60 Weia Reinboud of Holland, the high jump specialist and world stat expert, may have set a record for records in the event: She wrote Friday: “Tonight in my hometown Utrecht I have improved my own indoor record of last year. This 1.43 [4-8 1/4] makes a dozen world records. It was a mixed meet and the prescribed starting height was 1.38 [4-6 1/4]. After clearing that in my first attempt, the record height of 1.43 took two attempts. [Her listed indoor WR was 1.41] In fact it was not a really good jump, technically, but a record is a record. The next height of 1.48 [4-10 1/4] was clearly too high.” See results here. She adds: “Jan Huijbers [set a] national record M60 of 1.58 [5-2 1/4], first meet after a long injury, he is absolutely able for bigger heights.” Age-Graded, Weia’s 1.43 at age 61 is worth an open mark of 2.08 [6-9 3/4]. Jan’s 1.58 is worth 2.17 [7-1 1/2] Great efforts, Weia and Jan!
