M35 pentathlon WR kicks off Budapest world indoor championships
See results here for Day 1, which includes the men’s and women’s pentathlon. First WR at worlds may be M35 Oscar Gonzalez of Spain in the pentathlon, according to a Facebook posting by Andres Martinez. (Results site is lagging, though.) Monday was opening ceremonies, and WMA President Stan Perkins posted on Facebook (rather than the WMA website): “Fantastic atmosphere at the official opening ceremony of the 6th World Masters Championships Indoors… The official opening was performed by Cesar Moreno Bravo from Mexico, who is the Chairman of the IAAF Masters Commission and the IAAF representative to the World Masters Athletics Council. The parade of athletes was colourful and again a happy occasion. Now the competition begins for the 3,900 athletes attending. Good competition and good health to one and all.” Feel free to post your news on my latest Budapest report!Bully for Budapest. LOC is using tried-and-true system for posting results.
