Vol. 2 No. 48 Anthony Whiteman 40 years old sub 4 minute mile

Anthony Whiteman out of Cleesthorpe , UK set a new outdoor record for the Masters mile on the Vanderbilt track in Nashville this week. His time of 3:58.79 surpassed the previous outdoor record of 4:01.62 held by Vyacheslav Shavunin. Only Eammon Coghlan's indoor Master's time of 3:58.13 has been faster over that distance. the race can be seen at the following site. ///// ///// I realize we focus more on 1950's and 60's track and field events, but the achievment by Anthony Whiteman is certainly worth noting. Congratulations for an outstanding performance. Anthony Whiteman finishing the race.
