Listed is a compilation of my past achievements in USATF Masters Track and Field

2016/2017

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. The Good. The year started with the continued domination of the M70 hurdles and a fantastic trip to the USATF MASTERSS INDOOR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. During the finals of the M7 60m dash, I set the WORLD RECORD for that distance at 8.11. I was completely engulfed in emotion, after beating one of the best fields ever assembled for this event. World record holders and Hall of Famers. The following day I broke the US record of the M70 200 meter dash, with a time of 27.03. I also won my third Gold Medal in the M70 60m hurdles.

The outdoor season was the bad and the ugly. I was injured at the prestigious Penn Relays, after winning the M70 100m dash. That injury ended my season.

 

2015

After a disappointing 2014, things were a lot brighter in 2015. I moved into the next age group and once again dominated the short hurdles, establishing WORLD RECORDS both indoors and outdoors. The standards that were set were 9.44 and 12.61 respectfully. I won the prestigious Penn Relays 100m dash in 13.03, well enough to be ranked 3rd in the world. I also was a double winner at the Masters National Indoor Championships, winning the 60m hurdles and the 200m dash.

During 2015 I was selected the USATF Male Athlete of the Year for the M70.

 

2014

This year I was plagued with injuries and illness, mostly as a result of the medical procedure I had in 2013. However, I was able to remain competitive. During indoor season, I posted the fastest 60m dash time with a 7.85 hand time. The outdoor season highlights were a runner up finish in the 100m dash at the Penn Relays and running the 3rd leg of the winning 4×100 relay, also at the Penn Relays. A come back in 2015 is at the top of my track list.

 

2013

WORLD RECORD, WORLD RECORD. Can you say WORLD RECORD. In May of 2013 at the USATF Southeastern Regional Championships, in Raleigh NC I set the new standard (15.20) for the 100 meter hurdles by breaking the old record (15.47) of the great German hurdler Rolf Geese. What a grand moment. During this same meet I won the gold medal in the Long Jump and a silver in the 100m dash. I also had a fine indoor season by becoming the USATF Masters 60m Hurdles Champion for the fourth time. I was also ranked 2nd in 60m dash, with a time of 8.01. For health reasons, my track season was cut short and I was not able to compete in the outdoor National and World Championships. A disappointment to say the least. I am looking forward to the 2014 with great anticipation.
