M60 long jump superstar emerges at SoCal Indoor … Outdoor meet
Andy Hecker, director of the annual Southern California Indoor Meet Held Outdoors, has posted results. See them here. Besides the Nolan Shaheed M60 American record for 3,000, the meet saw M60 Jim Stevens long jump 5.85 meters (19-2 1/2). How good is that? The listed WR is 6.07 (19-11) by Southern California’s Tom Patsalis way back in 1982. So who is Jim Stevens? I haven’t a clue. His name doesn’t turn up in my results searches. But I love the prospect of out-of-the-woodwork track stars over 60.
