Total 11 world records fall during three days of USA Masters Indoor Championships


LANDOVER, Md. – A trio of world records on the meet’s final day brought the total number of all-time world bests to 11 over the three days of competition as the USA Masters Indoor Track & Field Championships wrapped up Sunday at the Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex.

A record 1,044 entrants ages 30-95+ from 14 countries and 47 states were on hand for the championships, which included 10 Olympians and 30 world championships. The Potomac Valley Track Club won the overall team title among 70 clubs from around the country. More information on the USA Masters Indoor Championships along with complete results can be found here.

Charles Allie (M65) set his second record of the championships Sunday with a world record run in the men’s 200m with a winning time of 25.41 seconds.  Allie also established the American record in the 400m in a time of 58.81 earlier in the meet. 

Competing in the most senior division of the championships, Orville Rogers (M95) added two more world records to his credit Sunday. His time of 6:53.84 set a world record in the 800m and his time of 57.88 established a world best in the 200m. The pair of records makes it six total world records for Rogers at the Masters Indoor Championships, which also includes best marks in the 3000m (30:19.33), mile (14:39.91), 400m (2:24.51) and 60m (14.82).

There were also multiple American age-group records established Sunday, which included: Gary Hunter (M57) with a clearing of 4.31m/14-1.75 in the pole vault; Barbara Broad (W62) in the 800m with a time of 2:41.61; Lorraine Jasper (W51) in the 800m in a time of 2:26.09; Gloria Krug (W81) set American records in both the super weight throw with a mark of 5.70m/18-8.25 and in the weight throw with a mark of 6.88m/22-6.75.

Additional highlights from the weekend of competition at the USA Masters Indoor Championships included:
•  Bruce McBarnette (M55) predicting his world record jump in the men’s high jump then following through in clearing a height of 1.88m/6-2.
•  Three-time Olympian and 1984 Olympic flagbearer Ed Burke (M73) opening competition Friday with wins in both the weight throw and superweight throw.
•  Two world records and one American record set in a single race in the M85, M90 and M95 age groups in the 3,000m in what Masters Track & Field Meet Coordinator Carroll DeWeese called the “fastest old race ever.”
