Leland McPhie making M100 debut at Boston masters nationals

Leland was a long jump star for SDSU in the 1930s.

Poor Champion Goldy. With a name made for track celebrity and an age (97) apt for veneration, the Rev. Goldy should be the star at Boston indoor nationals next month. Alas, he’s been upstaged. Four days before the meet starts March 14, Leland McPhie of San Diego turns the big 1-0-0. Absent from big meets since 2011 Sacramento worlds, Leland appears poised to set at least one M100 world record at Boston. According to the Status of Entries, Leland is entered in the shot, weight throw, superweight throw and high jump. The legendary Everett Hosack holds three WRs in the throws. But no high jump best is listed. Also expect a record rush from W80 Irene Obera, making another comeback on the national stage. She’s entered in the 60, 200, 400 and shot put.

    Leland is a big inspiration to me and the energizer battery got nothing on him!

    San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is honoring retired Capt. McPhie on March 10. See the nice writeup by agency PR:
