Christa at the start of 100.
Running in miserable weather, Christa Bortignon
of Canada nipped the listed world record in the W75 200-meter hurdles over the weekend. Her time of 41.70 was just ahead of the listed WR of 41.71 by Barbara Jordan
at 2011 Sacramento worlds. And she ran it into a 2.8 meters per second headwind! Christa writes: “It was pouring rain all of Saturday and most of Sunday, at 13 вЂ“15 degrees [55-59 Fahrenheit] or with gusting winds. The meet was the 2012 BritishВ Columbia Master Championships in Langley, BC. Also broke my previous 200 Canadian record with a 34.94 time and won 8 gold medals altogether: 100, 200, 200 hurdles, high jump, long jump, triple jump, javelin and shot put.” Still looking for link to meet results, but way to go, CB! And WMA, please clean up your records list. You list the W75 record
with the 300-meter hurdles records. In other words, Barbara is depicted as running 300s in 41.7!
