Indoor WRs reported for M80 Bob Lida and M45 Anthony Whiteman

According to results and a tweet, Bob Lida of Kansas has his first M80 world record — in the 200 — and Britain’s Anthony Whiteman has taken down the M45 WR in the 800 by more than a second. Despite a URL with 2016 in it, Bob is denoted as 80 in these results from the Butterworth Indoor meet at Wichita State University. He turned 80 in November. His time of 30.01 crushed the listed WR of 31.23 by fellow American Harry Brown at 2010 Boston nationals. Bob also holds the listed M75 indoor and outdoor WRs at 200. The listed M80 outdoor WR is 29.54 by Japan’s Hisamitsu Hijiya in 2012. At Wichita, Bob also ran the 60 in 9.08 — two-tenths off the listed WR of 8.88 by Mel Larsen. Across the pond, Anthony tweets having run 1.54.85. The listed WR is 1:56.10 by Nicholas Berra of Pennsylvania. Here’s what AW said:

    I was just commenting on this a few days ago. Certainly will go faster. 800/1500 indoor world records and probably 800, 1500, mile outdoors this year.
    Just incredible.

    Great marks!! Matt – I believe Sean Wade ran a 4:20?? Cheers & Health

  5. Matt B. - February 5, 2017

    I don’t see a sub 4:20 for Wade anywhere.
    There was the 4:23.07 indoor mile last year though. Maybe that should be the world record and Nolan’s 4:25 the American record – Does Sean Wade run for New Zealand?

    I just checked; Sean Wade is the official American indoor record holder for the mile in M50 based on his 4:23.07 in Boston last February.

    The world indoor masters records were updated December 31, 2016, just 5 weeks ago. The world indoor record holder for M50? Nolan Shaheed, at 4:26.75.

  7. Peter L. Taylor - February 5, 2017

    And yes, Nolan Shaheed at age 51 is the American and world M50 OUTDOOR record holder in the mile at 4:25.04.
