Our M60 psychiatrist friend Stephen Peters won the 100, 200 and 400 over the weekend at British masters nationals. See results here. Steve’s margins of victory were even more impressive — 12.42 to 13.09 for runner-up Simon Barrett, 24.90 to 26.55 for silver medalist Ian Broadhurst and 58.23 to Simon’s 60.87. An even crazier set of results was the men’s pole vault, where the M50 winner (Mark Johnson at 4.20) beat the winning heights of M45 (4.00) and M35 (3.80). Admittedly, the turnout was weak by U.S. standards. But kudos to M40 100 winner Esmei Ossai on his 10.97 and M70 champion Victor Novell at 13.75. Alfred Hermes in Germany reported two Eurovets records set at BMAF: M80 Tony Bowman in the 80-meter hurdles (14.93) and W65 Caroline Marler in the 400: 72.37. More details at Athletics Weekly.
