WMA records updated, but guess which ones missed the cut
WMA’s records pages were updated Friday, but the insanity continues. M85 Earl Fee and M75 Guido MÃ¼eller get recognition for 2014 marks. So do M45 Brad Barton and M55 Wolfgang Knabe. But M35s Kim Collins (100) and Chris Brown (400) do not. The historic M90 4×100 team of Ross, Rogers, Englert and Goldy is listed, but not the M90 4×400 and 4×800 teams of Ross, Rogers, Englert and Boyle at the same meet. In other words, Charles Boyle didn’t make it through the record-grinder. (Yet he had to submit proof of age at nationals, right?) On the women’s side, eight WRs from N.C. nationals made the cut (including four by W80 Irene Obera). And W70 Aussie Lavinia Petrie gets credit for three WRs â€” 3000 in 13:07.79, 5000 in 21:34.08 and 10K in 44:43.27. And finally, justice is served! As a friend noted: “Jeanne Daprano gets her W75 world mark in theÂ mile of 6:58.44 that she ran way back in 2012.Â A look at the American records, however, shows that this mark never even made “pending” status.Â Thus, Jeanne’sÂ mark of 7:13.31 for W75 remains unchallenged as the American standard for women 75-79.” Don’t try to explain it. System went off the rails many years ago.
