Another June meet, another American record for Sue McDonald

Sue is insatiable. Her second W50 American record in the high jump this month came at Sunday’s USATF Western Regional Masters Championships at Caltech in Pasadena. Peter Hlavin, the M55 American record holder in the event, shared the video below, which I slowed down. You’ll note Sue’s runup wasn’t perfect. She appears to slow near the end and then speed up. So she has inches left in the tank. Congrats again to Super Sue! Now I’m awaiting a link to full results.

    Nice to watch. With 1 cm every week we only have to wait for three weeks to see a world record.

    Congratulations Sue! Keep up the good work. I’m inspired to keep at it too.

    Also a nice jump of Kathy Bergen: 1.22 at age 73.
