Irene Obera pulls a Jesse Owens at Bay Area Games: 3 WRs!
Haven’t seen results posted online, but Masters Mole 673(c)4 reports: “I work closely with [W80] Irene Obera and I thought you might like to know what she did today at the Bay Area Senior Games held at the College of San Mateo. The meet is USATF-sanctioned and run under the auspices of senior USATF official Leroy Milam. Irene first ran a 17.06 in the hundred meters, with a wind reading of -0.1, besting both the listed and pending WRs. Then she long jumped 10-1 1/2 inches (3.09), which betters the listed outdoor WR held by [Christa] Happ of Germany. Finally, Irene blasted a 35.69 [in the 200] to eclipse her recent indoor WR time (36.53) as well as the unofficial outdoor best of 39.92 by [Emma] Mazzenga. I didn’t get the wind reading.” Whatta day for Irene! If the report pans out, she set three world record inside of 2 hours. Incredible.
