The latest USA Team total is at over 1800, which is much larger than previous teams of around 500 when the meet has been held in a foreign country. The Masters T&F and LDR Committees are planning our team support, which includes:
USA Team Manager, Phil Greenwald, who will be on site from July 5th through the last relay on Sunday July 17th and Mary Rosado who is the team manager for the Masters LDR Committee. Marilyn Mitchell and a yet to be named fourth person complete the USA Team support.
The masters committee is arranging to provide physiotherapy support which may include a chiropractor, physical therapy, taping and massage. Also arranging for shade tents in the warm-up area.
60m Timing Issues in Albuquerque
The timing company finally delivered a number of files to the Games Committee about two weeks ago which were analyzed to determine if valid 60m times can be produced. The Masters T&F executive committee has decided that no records will count in the 60M event (Due to major irreconcilable inconsistencies in the timing of this event due to timer malfunctions). All places will stand, however, and all times in all other events are accurate and will count toward records. We regret that this happened and we are changing the process of hiring and managing the timing company. Once again we apologize to all the 60m runners for this timing error.
