Sunday 26th February – Unofficial World indoor Masters 400m W65 Record

Report from Caroline Marler:

I had a race at the indoor Inter Area on Feb. 26th at Lee Valley. I couldn’t raise a NMAC team so ran in the Welsh team, who put me in a younger age group W50-60 instead of W60-70. This gave me a hard race but I came 4th in 70.98 and broke my own W65 European Indoor Record easily ( it was 73.57) and also the World indoor record of 71.89 (set in 2001). Unfortunately it appears there were not enough level 4 officials judging do it may not be ratified. I will have to do it again! I have the British indoor Champs on March 11/12 and then the World indoor Masters Champs in Daegu, Korea from March 31st.

    I couldn’t quite get the context of how fast this was until I tried to run a flat-out 400 the other day. Amazing time Caroline.
