Mongolian masters track! How I love writing alliterative headlines

Apparently color photography hasn’t reached Mongolia media yet. But gold is still gold.

WMA is doing its job. One of its missions is getting more nations involved in masters track. Mission accomplished with Mongolia! The UB Post out of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, reports (with crazy inconsistency): “Mongolian master athlete T. Tserendolgor, 76, won gold medals in three contests of the World Master Athletics Championships 2014. She won the M45 shot put, M60 javelin throw and M70 discus throw which took place on March 26. T. Tserendolgor is one of the few experienced athletes of the Mongolian Athletics Association. She previously participated in tournaments held in Brazil and European countries, and won a total of 12 gold, 21 silver and 9 bronze medals in total.)” The results site (with a set of boogered PDFs that don’t open properly) confirms her marks. See below. Her first name appears to be Tumurbat. And she wasn’t the only Mongolian in Budapest. Also competing was W55 thrower Altantsetseg Ayush. No Mongolian men apparently. So this makes Mongolia even better than Team USA for winning medals — But not as good as Moldova, where all its entrants medaled. (What’s with those M-nations?) Turns out Tserendolgor has been around for years, competing at the Asian Masters Championships in 2006 and the Sydney World Masters Games in 2009, for example. She must have some M-oney!

Here’s the M-results:

    Tumurbat was with us in Porto Alegre, where she was only surpassed by the great Evaun Williams.
    Unfortunately, we could not converse with her, but smiles and nodding did the trick.
    Hope to see her again – but NO in my age group.
    I am leaving…
