Jane Horder clobbers W60 WR in 300 hurdles at least four times!

Jane Horder is a BEAST! While scanning results from the recent British masters nationals in Birmingham, I came across a stunning result — Jane’s 51.25 for 300-meter hurdles in W60, which would have easily won silver in the M60 event. And it beats the listed world record of 51.64 by Aussie Marge Alison at 2005 San Sebastian worlds. But wait! There’s more! Jane’s Power of 10 rankings show her running 51.2 and 50.5 earlier in her newbie W60 season. (She turned 60 in January.) But hold onto your Nikes. Jane’s season best is 49.80 at the South West Veterans Championships in Exeter on June 18. Oh my. So she not only beats the WR by nearly 2 seconds, she goes sub-50. She’s no stranger to the record books. At Daegu worlds in March, Jane set a W60 WR in the 60 hurdles with a 9.90. (And she holds the listed W55 WR for 300 hurdles of 49.00.) Another star at Birmingham was sprint legend Steve Peters, who at 63 swept the 100 (12.47), 200 (25.37) and 400 (59.87). Lemme know if I missed any other sensational marks at the BMAF meet. And I’d better hear the Brits boasting about Jane, coached by WR man and world-title long hurdler Howard Moscrop.

    Your result scanning of the British Masters Champs missed spotting Angela Copson’s W70 WR in the 5,000m. Her 20:56.13 was over a minute faster than the old record.

    And I’ll e-mail you a more recent picture of our Jane.
