Strong reception for Toland M45 record in ultraweight pentathlon

“I thought I felt earthquakes this weekend.” That was one of dozens of reactions Sunday on Facebook to Patrick Toland’s report that he’d set an American record in the ultraweight pentathlon at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Results weren’t immediately posted, but an image of scores shows M45 Patrick with a total of 4441 points, a massive improvement over the listed AR (there is no WR) of 3980 by David Bickel in 2012. It was Day 2 of the USA Masters Throws Championships. Not sure if other records were set. And Patrick’s luck held out when he won at poker at Foxwoods Resort later in the day. Patrick’s throws included implements up to 300 pounds, I gather from this outline of the event. See Pat and others throwing last year:
