Carol Lafayette-Boyd has to be fast to set W75 indoor world records in the long jump and triple jump, as she did last month. Now we know how fast. At the Regina Indoor Games last weekend in Regina, Saskatchewan, Carol clipped SoCal Kathy Bergen’s listed world record for 60 meters — clocking 9.40 seconds. Kathy went 9.49 at ABQ nationals two years ago. The 9.40 is worth an open ladies time of 6.52 seconds! (The real WR is 6.92.) “She is on fire this winter!” Muriel Gieni of Saskatoon writes about Carol, sharing the WR news. Another WR is being reported by WMA’s Bridget Cushen:Jane Horder of Great Britain broke her own World Indoor W60 60mH record on 3 February whilst competing in the Loughborough Students Open Meet, running 9.80 sec over the 0.686 hurdles. She took the World title in Daegu last March in 9.90sec.” Congrats to both.

Carol kept girls young enough to be her daughters on their toes in 60.

    Yes, I plan to be in Spain. It will take some real HARD work to come near Kathy Bergen’s High Jump record!
