Perth world champion Sabra Harvey of Texas added another world record to her growing collection Saturday, running 3,000 meters in 11:47.30 at the Portland Track Festival. That beat the listed W65 WR of 11:48.2 by Britain’s Angela Copson in 2012. Sabra was fourth in a race won by W45 Sonja Friend-Uhl in 10:05.19. (Sonja ran 9:53.04 indoors.) (See results here.) It’s not her first visit to Oregon for this elite meet. In 2010, Sabra clocked 11:11.49 for a W60 American record at 3K. So she’s lost but 5.1 seconds a year. Sabra holds WRs at 800, 1500 and 4X8. The men’s masters mile is Sunday. Also filtering in is a WR in the W60 throws pentathlon — 4597 points by Holland’s Tiny Hellendoorn at the Werpvijfkamp voor Masters meet in Edan. Results are here. That beat the listed WR of 4519 by Denmark’s Ann Kirstine Jensen at 2015 Lyon worlds.
