Historic marks: First M105 athlete is Poland’s Stanislaw Kowalski

Aside from the legend of Larry Lewis, the 106-year-old San Francisco waiter who supposedly ran exhibition sprints, we’ve never seen an M105 masters trackster. Until now. As expected, Stanislaw Kowalski of Poland competed after turning 105 in mid-April. The Polish track site shares details, including a records roundup at its masters nationals in Torun over the weekend. Italian statman Luigi Fasolato sent me word of Stan’s M105 records: Friday, Stan ran 100 in 34.50 (into the slightest wind) and threw the discus 7.50 meters (24-7 1/4). On Saturday, he put the shot 4.27 (14-0). Now it’s time for WMA to add a new row to the record books. Here’s Stan in May 2014:
