When will Kim Collins be recognized as the M40 WR man at 60m?

Kim rates the best graphics as well as records.

Kim Collins is still making money running fast in his skivvies at age 41. Now the IAAF reports he’ll make his seventh appearance at the PSD Bank Meeting “when he lines up for the 60m at the IAAF World Indoor Tour meeting in Dusseldorf on 6 February 2018. … Collins, the 2003 world 100m champion who set a PB of 9.93 in 2016 at the age of 40, finished a close second in Dusseldorf earlier this year in 6.56, the same time as winner Yunier Perez of Cuba.” So naturally I checked the listed WR at WMA. Says “6.78 Troy Douglas NED 40 25/01/03.” Then I checked my own site and, voila, a post from February noting Kim’s 6.56. (His season best, though, was 6.52, which should by all rights be the listed M40 WR.) So what’s up, WMA? How did Kim fly under your radar? Failed to mail the paperwork?

    The real WR is 6.52 2017-02-04 in Mondeville (France), but this is not the only record not updated

    There are more records of young masters, 35-40 years old, which remain under the radar. There could be good reasons for not ratyfiing them, but I would like to know those reasons. Now it looks like not being interested. See here for blue ones: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_world_records_in_masters_athletics
