Two months ago, Lenore Lambert of New South Wales (in Auzzieland) ran a W45 national record in the 400 hurdles, clocking 63.85 at her masters nationals. Saturday in Cairns, Queensland, she’s shooting for the listed WR of 62.85 by Germany’s Barbara Gähling in 2010. So says this article in the Cairns Post. Lenore will compete at Barlow Park in the Great Barrier Reef Masters Games. “It is kind of the only box left to tick, this world record,” Lambert told the paper. “There is only one thing left to do — can I do it? I do not want to die having not tried it.” Attagirl! Her best 400 flat this year is 59.73, so she has the speed endurance. Kissy points to the first person to post her mark.

    Her 12.58 in the 80 meter sprint hurdles was very fast.

    There was a 4m/s head wind around the first bend, so I had to give up on the idea of the record before I started! Broke the Aussie record again a few weeks later (63.63) but haven’t yet cracked the WR.
