WMA to name world’s best masters sprinter, thrower, jumper, etc.

With no warning, World Masters Athletics is expanding its annual awards program. Instead of just a female and male Athlete of the Year, it’s going to honor the top male and female sprinter, thrower, jumper, middle-distancer, etc. (See details here.) The world governing body also is trying to remove the mystery of its annual WMA Best Male and Female Athlete Awards. Here’s the interesting part: Nominators don’t have to be the regions. WMA says: “Athletes may be nominated by either: The Regional Representative or a member of the WMA Council or the WMA Records Chair. Each WMA Region may use their own method of selection. The nomination form must be returned to the WMA Records Chair [Sandy Pashkin] by January 15, 2018, who will collate the nominations for the selection vote of the WMA Council.” Also a promise: “Results will be posted on the WMA webpage on February 5th, 2018.”

WMA outta start an email newsletter to spread the word of actions like this.
