Myrle Mensey tacks foot onto W65 indoor super weight USA record

Myrle Mensey of St. Louis added a foot to her listed W65 American indoor record in the super weight throw last weekend, heaving the 20-pound implement 11.36 meters ((37-3 1/4) at a meet in Champaign, Illinois. A year ago, she set the record of 11.06 (36-3) at Albuquerque nationals. (No world records are kept because the event isn’t contested by WMA.) A University of Illinois video guy posted masters throws. Also cited are Lew Breese, Martha Green, Tim Cederblad and Ruth Welding. Our Iowa friend Kay Glynn also competed. At 63, she did the 60 hurdles (13.39), pole vault (2.35/7-8 1/2) and long jump (3.59/11-9 1/4). See results here from Feb. 4 meet.
