PVTC athletes are recognized on the Maryland Senior Olympics website for their 2010 achievements. Congratulations to all our participants and record holder. www.mdseniorolympics.org Audrey Lary, Frederick, 76, set a National Masters mark of 34-05.50 in the weight throw. While she won six gold medals and easily qualified for the 2011 National Senior Games, Mrs. Lary did not improve on her MSO sprint records in the 100, 200 and 400 dashes. We're pretty sure she'll be in top form by next year's Nationals in Houston . Alby Williams, 70, of Bethesda clocked a 1:06.04 in the 400, ending the 19-year mark of 1:10.00 by Edward Matthews Jr. Sharon Good, 78, also improved her weight throw mark by over 10 feet to 48-02.

Bruce McBarnette attempted a World Record 2.01m right after clearing 1.90m.
He was over cleaning on the 3rd attempt and just brushed it off with his lower calf! Freakin' amazing!
That 2.01m world record attempt by Bruce translates to 6' 7".
Other significent news from the Worlds, reported by Jim Barr:
Season's best for Jim Barrineau in the high jump and Bob Clark in the long jump. Looks like Neil Fairclough probably got injured in the pentathlon hurdles.
Congratulations to PVTC member Bruce McBarnett, newly crowned masters world high jump champion. Bruce cleared 1.90m, over 6' 3", to win the men's 50-54 age group at last weeks World Masters Indoor Championships in France.
Bruce is in great form as usual, having set an American record twice at the Sportsplex winter indoor meets, first at 1.90m then a raising it to 1.92m.
PVTC's other World's entries:
Jim Barrineau finished 4th in the M50-54 HJ clearing 1.81m.
Roger Crockett got a M60-64 5th in the LJ at 4.98m and 6th in TJ with a 9.68m effort.
Robert Clark, a 2007 member brought home the Silver in men's 50-54 long jump with a leap of 5.97m.

After setting the American record at 1.87 meters during the previous Showcase meet, Bruce raised the American record twice at Sunday's meet.
Bruce is his own stiffest competition. Bruce first raised the record to 1.88 meters with a first-attempt clearance that brought a loud and enthusiastic cheer from the spectators.
There was more to come, as the bar went up to 1.92 meters (that is 6 feet 3 1/2+ inches. At this height Bruce kept the audience in suspense, waiting until his third attempt to clear the new American record height.

* The weather was fine, and the course dry. It was in a park, out and back twice, with a mass start - everyone at once. It was hilly, not excessively so, but probably steeper than a racewalk course should be. No complaints about the course. -- Don Gerson

Potomac Valley Track Club's masters athletes had another highly successful competition at the USA Masters Outdoor T&F Championships in Hawaii.
Congratulations to all our athletes!
Ten of our athletes competed, bringing home 30 medals from University of Hawaii's "Rainbow" track with multicolored lanes. Notable achievements were by Roy Englert and Jim Stookey, who won everything they entered, and by Marcus Battle, Roger Crockett, Audrey Lary, Helen Schley and Alby Williams who medaled in every event entered. Ted Poulos added a third silver to his collection and one more to the club's collection in the 8k run held in conjunction with the T&F Championships, making a total of 27500m of competition for the venture.
In team competition, PVTC was 4th best out of 91 teams.
PVTC and other local athlete results are below. Several athletes who have been familiar competitors at PVTC events are included. Hillen van Maltzahn [formerly Stubendorff] who won 6 gold and 2 silver medals, running for Team Tendonitis, which seems an appropriate team name for masters age athletes.

Apparently, these Games are the biggest competition on the planet with 22,000+ athletes competing. Not as big as the Melbourne games in '02 with 28k athletes but a much better Games. A tremendous effort from coordinators and volunteers to put on a spectacular event. Very well coordinated and publicized. My only issue was the early closing of the beer vendors at the closing ceremonies.
See below for PVTC results. Some quick thoughts below.
Dr. Jim Stookey had two World Records in both the hurdle races. He crushed the previous record in the 300m hurdles by 2 seconds. I believe he broke a record that he just set 3 weeks ago. Incredible performance. He also won the HJ and TJ but took a second in the LJ to a German who nearly broke the World Record with a 4.75 jump in the M75 division. I believe he's heading to Hawaii and on to San Sebastian.
I had a 6-year personal best in the HJ, clearing 1.80m and had two great attempts at 1.85. I credit it to the nice springy surface in Edmonton and being ticked off about my Javelin and Shot performances the previous days. In the Discus, I competed against former Olympic Decathlon Champion Robert Zmelik, who won of course, actually throwing .17m further than his Olympic Disc throw. He's a little bigger in the mid-section after a knee injury sidelined him last year so maybe the extra weight helped. I got a happy 4th and some memorable pictures.
Good Pentathlon competition and story with it - the Gold Medalist, Roman Kamas (Slovakia) from 2002 in Melbourne, and my main competition pulled up in the LJ but stayed to watch the competition and give me the Gold at the ceremony - a symbolic passing of the torch in a sense. Roman is visiting me at our house for a few days. After getting the bronze in Melbourne, it's been my goal for 3 years to win this one.
Also, did my first Weight Pentathlon. Good thing that no one I know saw me throw the hammer - very funny stuff.
Audrey Lary looked great in the 100m blowing by the field. She won everything as usual, 200m, LJ, TJ and weight throw. She is quite remarkable. She opted to save herself for Hawaii and not throw the shot or discus.
Marcus Battle had a tough go of it by getting into Edmonton the morning of his TJ competition. He just felt flat and didn't quite have it for this one. He'll bounce back and be ready for the PV games. I'm sure of it.
I put my hat in the ring for a 4x100 but no takers on this one. Most probably saw that I was in the Weight Pentathlon and said "I don't want some slow thrower on my relay team". Oh, well...next time.
I recruited Rob Thomas M35 (100,200,400 champ, 800 (2), 4x100 (1), 4x400 (2) to come to the Potomac Valley Games and put on a show for us. Also, looking forward to having Greg Foster M40 World champ in the LJ, TJ. He's a phenomenal jumper who also excels in the Pentathlon. Also, hope to see Kimiko Nakatake, a PVTC regular from NY, who took Silver in the HJ and Bronze in the TJ, and a 4th in LJ.

Videos of the race:
Marie Louise Michelsohn, 60, of Stony Brook, New York, set a pending U.S. national record for 3,000 meters (1.86 miles), running 12:08.7, at Potomac Valley Track Club's all-comers meet at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia, on Sunday, April 21, 2002.
Michelsohn broke a 16-year-old national record by 17 seconds, a large margin by track and field standards. The former record -- one of the oldest on the books -- was set by Margaret Miller of California, on July 23, 1986, who ran of 12:25.6 at age 60. See http://www.nationalmastersnews.com/outdoor_2001.html for all U.S. national age group records.
Michelsohn, a member of Bohemia Track Club, is coached by the legendary Pete Squires. She said she takes no special supplements and avoids weight lifting, instead building strength by running hills on the Rockefeller Estate in Tarrytown NY. She has run with world half-marathon record holder Paul Tergat and Olympian Tegla Laroupe. Michelsohn is a math professor at Stony Brook University, one of the state universities of New York.
Running in the rain, Michelsohn finished sixth overall, behind twins Kyle and Kareem Lanier of Lincoln University PA; masters runner Ted Poulos of McLean VA; teenage phenom Aynesleah Sinclair of Silver Spring MD; and marathoner Jay Jacob Wind of Arlington VA. Finishing behind Michelson were her husband, Blaine; World Champion F50-54 heptathlete Hillen Stubendorff of Germany, and other runners.

Patrick was in first place for about the first half of the race, but was eventually overtaken by Arturo, then at around 15K they were both passed by American Kevin Eastler who won the race. Kevin's pace calculates to 7:33 miles - walking! [Female winner] [Full Results]
