An M55 800 WR for Anselm LeBourne? What about earlier one?
Anselm LeBourne posted to Facebook that he had run 2:01.63 for 800 at a New York Road Runners Speed Series meet. This week, he posted that he’d set a “new official world record in the men’s 800 meters for 55-59 years old at long island USATF track meet. Ran a time of 2:03.42, breaking old world record of 2:03.70,” Stan Immelman’s mark from 2001. The NYRR series is not USATF-sanctioned, according to the USATF calendar. But in a posted comment, Rob Lemke said: “Last night Anselm ran 2:03.42 at a USATF-LI Summer Series meet in Hauppauge, NY.

Congratulations, Anselm!” Too bad the 2:01 won’t fly.Now I’m really confused. In mid-June
