New Canadian Relay Records
Four Masters women from the Greyhounds Masters Track and Field Club set a new Canadian standard in the W60 4x100 metre relay. Competing on April 26th, at the University of Oregon's famed Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, the team of Deborah Lee, Christa Bortignon, Urith Hayley and Elaine Whidden, ran the 400 metre relay in a time of 1:03.74.
This breaks the Canadian Masters W60 record of 1:04.60 which was set by Team Canada at the 2011 World Masters Athletics Championships, in Sacramento, California. Having four women from the same club break a National record which was set by four women representing Canada, is a huge accomplishment.
