Welshman claims M70 WR at 60; Yank gets M80 weight throw AR

Glynn on Facebook.

Glyn explodes on Facebook.

From somewhere in UK came a Facebook post by Glyn Sutton, an M70 sprinter: “Have just lowered at Lee Valley (London) the M70 World Indoor Masters 60 metres record from the shared time (with Kenton Brown USA) from 8.18 secs to 8.12 secs. Absolutely delighted, chuffed, over the moon etc.” Haven’t seen official results, but the mark is listed on Glynn’s powerof10 page. At the Southeastern Regional meet over the weekend, M80 William Gramley threw the 12-pound weight 14.17 meters (46-6) to beat Bob Horsley’s listed American indoor record of 13.91 (45-7) back in 2002. Charles Allie had a great meet at JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem. At 68, he ran the 60 in 8.11, the 200 in 26.27 and the 400 in 60.77. Watch out, Glyn. He has your number in two years. (Here are results.)

    Yes, Charles did run 60.77 at age 68, and I remarked on that to the spectators. Running under your age in the 400 has always been a remarkable feat, but Charles Allie takes this to extremes.

    I was also very proud of Ben James, who came down from upstate New York to uncork a 57.48 in the 400 at age 58.

    In Lyon in August Glyn became a double World champion in M70 – on 100m (12.99 sec. with headwind), and on 200m (26.47 sec. – new WR).
    So, his 60m WR is not a big surprise.
