Final Perth report from Bob Weiner, Gary Snyder, Mary Trotto

Aside from a DNF in the 1500, Bob Weiner had a good worlds. He beat his archrival Doug “Shaggy” Smith in the M65 steeplechase and got lots of attention for Team USA via his Masters Media Committee. His final summary is posted on USATF. Mary Trotto compiled medal winners. Gary Snyder, our outgoing national chair, was quoted as saying: “Great meet. Amazing facilities, top quality. Well organized by WMA and Perth.” Man of few words.

    Thanks for the list of medal winners from Perth. Clayton Dennis won silver in the M50 javelin. To this day, he laughs and says “Thanks, Mom and Dad. People still want to call me Dennis Clayton.”

    Hi Ken,

    This information which was supplied to you is not the updated final medal count. The meet website list the final medal count as:

    U.S. Golds 74 and Total U.S. medals as 181.

    Exact link at:

    Also, I have never run a 4x100m relay in my life and at the age of 46 I don’t think I will start.
    The silver medal W40 4x100m team listed here in the medal results was actually our W40 4x400m silver medal team.

    Lastly, thought after I corrected my name at registration on the first day of the meet that the misspelling wouldn’t follow all the way back to American soil weeks later….ugh!! Christine not Chrestine! Don’t feel too bad Clayton 🙂

    The WMA meet in Perth was well-organized and they utilized top facilities. However, the announcer was extremely unprofessional and very rude to some athletes while competing and finishing on the track. His comments were unreal! The wind at the main stadium never seemed to die down below 20 mph most days. The one engraver for medals at the meet ruined numerous medals with misspellings, incorrect times listed and used sloppy child-like cursive – all for $10 AUS each. I had to ask our team manager to request a replacement medal for me…since I did not run 2:18 for the 800m, nor could was my name legible.

    Lastly, the athletes party scheduled in the evening at the Perth Zoo was advertised as offering an exclusive one hour showing of their exotic Australian animals – at a whopping price of $90 which included one drink and food. I was so excited to maybe see a kangaroo, a koala, a wallaby, a kuaka, etc. NOT! They only brought out one small lizard. Can’t believe I paid for that!

    Overall, still had a great time at Worlds.
