McBarnette blasts over own world indoor HJ record
isn't M45 anymore, but he knows a good jump in that age group when
he sees one. He wrote today: "Watched Bruce McBarnette jump
1.95m for a new 45-49 Indoor World record today in Landover, MD,
with room to spare. Not really close on any of his 1.98 jumps. I
managed a game 1.78 (5-10 in M50 age group). If he can stay fit
for another two years, he may be the only guy capable of threatening
Z-man's 50 record."
(or 6-4 3/4) betters his own listed world M45 age-group record of
1.93 (6-4) set on March 29, 2003.
But the holy
grail of masters jumpers remains the 2.00 indoor leap by Germany's
Thomas Zacharias in March 1997 -- when Thomas was 50!
