More than 80 weightfolk are entered this weekend in the USATF Masters Throws Championships at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Many big names are coming, including Ray Feick, Tim Morse, Tim Muller, Larry Rheams, Patrick Toland, Carol Finsrud, Neni Lewis, Gloria Krug, Myrle Mensey and Mary Roman. It’s basically a meet to decide the best all-around throwers in the Throws Pentathlon (Saturday) and the Ultra Weight Pentathlon / Superweight Championship (Sunday). Records can be set in individual events, and we expect a few from W60 Carol and W65 Myrle. Sadly, it’s not being live streamed. But another meet, starting Friday in London, can be viewed live on YouTube. The IAAF Kiddies meet (which includes assorted masters) will be on cable, too. Here’s the USATF release with the TV schedule. Best of luck to all, including the LOC Twilight Throwers.

    It’s a shame that millions of kids no longer get to watch track and filed meets on a regular basis on their TV. Where are the “Wide World of Sports” when you need them?

    The Twilight Throwers, headed by Jim Burgoyne and Bob Cedrone (in absentia, recovering from triple by-pass surgery), did a superb job organizing the meet that attracted 94 entries (two short of the record set three years ago). Saturday’s competition was hampered by intermittent heavy rain; Sunday’s weather, by contrast, was gorgeous.

    Results are posted here:

    Next year most likely in San Antonio, TX, hosted by the Texas Throwers, in October.
