Marathon Result Is an Age-Old Story

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!
