From Morning Briefing in the Los Angeles Times:
Tatyana Pozdnyakova’s performance in the Los Angeles Marathon was unbelievable. After inspecting the results, reader Ken Feldman of Granada Hills made these points about the 49-year-old Ukrainian:
• Her time of 2:30:17 was faster than all men 40 and over.
• Only 15 men had better times.
• The next-closest woman to her who was at least 40 finished nearly an hour behind her in a time of 3:18.27.
• When she is 50 next year, she might beat the next-closest female 50-year-old by more than one hour. On Sunday, the best female age 50-54 had a time of 3:33.07.
Go Tatyana Go!
