Americans go 1-2 in W55 javelin at Sacramento world masters meet

Our friend Linda Cohn edged fellow Yank Monica Kendall in the W55 javelin to defend her Lahti world title of 2009. In Finland, she threw 38.12 meters (125-1). Today she threw 37.97 (124-7) in near-stifling heat (high 90s) at Sacramento State University. Silver medalist Monica, the W50 American record holder, was about a foot behind at 37.70 (123-8). Dozens of medals were awarded, and Canadian’s Olga Kotelko extended her own W90 world record in the hammer, tossing 16.71 (54-10). But Trent Lane was a no-show in the M100 shot put. Here’s the medal ceremony for Linda and Monica:
