Nolan Shaheed nails 3000 record at Striders Meet of Champions
Nolan signals AR.
set his latest American record yesterday morning at the Striders Meet of Champions
at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California. He clocked 9:49.76 for 3000 meters to beat the listed M60 AR of 10:11.24 by Douglas Winn in 2010. Amazing as that is, Nolan three weeks ago ran 3K even faster вЂ” but didn’t get credit for the time. He wrote me that he was at a SoCal college meet and “stopped my watch at 9:35 a few seconds after the race was over while we were in the finishing chute. When I went to get the official time, the timer told me the sun was up when the race started but went down during the race and he didn’t think to adjust the camera. So he turned it off when he realized the photo was going to be too dark to see.” So no record proof that day. Thank goodness all was kosher at Striders! Pete Magill
sent these photos of Nolan in his latest record, taken by Pete’s friend Diana Hernandez.
“The first is an action shot of Nolan in the race, bookended by Brian Pilcher
(recently set the American M55-59 5000 record) and Michael Buckoff,”
Pete writes. “The second is of Nolan celebrating as his record application is filled out [by Andy Hecker
Nolan gets help during his record run, but only his No. 2 time of the season.
