M70 Glyn Sutton adds indoor 60 best to his 200 WR from Lyon

Glyn and his world golds.

Glyn and his world golds.

Glyn Sutton ran an amazing 200 to win one of his three M70 golds at Lyon. He clocked 26.47 (a time I haven’t seen since about age 44.) On Saturday, he notched another WR, this time at a meet in Cardiff. “Delighted to announce another world record,” Glyn posted on Facebook. “This time breaking the indoor M70 60m world record with a time of 8.18 secs. Many thanks to Welsh Athletics for accommodating us at their GP Event and allowing us older athletes to show what can be achieved.” Results are here. Actually, he tied the 60 WR, also listed as 8.18 by American Kenton Brown last March at Winston-Salem nationals. Can’t wait to see these two gents go spike-to-spike.

    Way to go Glyn…. You are an incredibly special athlete.. It has been an honor to compete with you in the World Championships since Spain in 2005.

    Congratulations Glyn; we can share. I did enjoy competing with you in Lyon but hope to do better next time we go “spike to spike.” Looks like sailing and running on grass really works as training or was that just post meet legend?
