World Masters Athletics unveils a virtual Hall of Fame (with PDFs)

With no fanfare, our world governing body has posted illustrated mini-profiles of the 18 IAAF World Best masters athletes since 2004. They appear in a section of the World Masters Athletics website labeled WMA Hall of Fame. That might be a stretch, since I’m not aware of any official Hall of Fame for geezer track outside the national Halls of Fames, such as those in USA and Canada. But it’s a nice gesture. Also new is a section of the lefthand navigation rail titled Last Modified, which shows what’s new in the site. And apropos of nothing, I learned over the weekend that my wife and I had four photos accepted into the San Diego County Fair’s Exhibition of Photography. (One shot was one I took of Miss La Mesa hearing her name announced and three shots were by Chris Stone, including two of the women’s high jump champ at the 2012 Olympic Trials.) We’ll learn June 8 whether we’ve won ribbons or monetary prizes.

    Try again. One third of that WMA list are Australians? Re we again seeing a bias that some of us have commented on here before?

    hard to believe that Christa Bortignon is not a winner – what more does she have to do?
