Learning & Teaching By Competing-

Into the 60+ Age Group

Oh so much has happened over the past few months. I am very proud to let you know how my athletics season has finished up for this season. Turning 60 I went up into the next age group (60-64) . I have trained as hard as possible and went in March to compete in the World Masters Athletics Championships Indoor at Torun, Poland, where I podiumed with a silver in 60m hurdles in 10.35 sec. 2 years ago I came 3rd in this event in Daegu, South Korea in a time of 10.58. I am now aiming to strike again in Canada in 2020 World Indoors as my next goal. At Torun the competition was incredibly high. There were over 3,000 athletes, from about 90 countries and over 30 ex Olympic athletes competing. I had around 32 women to compete against in the 60 age group. I tried so hard, and was lucky to get through to finals in everything except the 400m finishing 5th in my heat & 9th overall.

In the 200m final, which was the same day at 8.30pm, I tried every recovery strategy under the sun but just couldn’t repeat the time from the morning finishing 4th.

Next was 60m hurdles, which I adore! I was hot on Jane Horder's heals (the World record holder) coming in 2nd. This time round she and I have become pretty good mates, and I think she was a bit surprised at my technique.

Then in the 60m hurdles final, two hours later, I came 2nd again with an even better time and thrilled to get SILVER and stand on the podium.
