Congratulations to those that competed at the 2020 Worldwide Masters Challenge recently. We were in Division B as we competed at an official facility with local officials...not at an official meeting as those in Division A did. The Virtual Champs were held as a Replacement for the cancelled Toronto World Champs, encouraging all Masters to keep fit and to aim for a fun competition during these difficult Covid times. Some achieved PB's, some were winners, some did not do as well as hoped for, but all were happy to achieve at least one placing for NZ. Results here
A word from World Masters Athletics
On behalf of World Masters Athletics, I congratulate you for participating in the 2020 Worldwide Virtual Masters Challenge. This year has been filled with disappointments for many athletes including the cancellation of our championship. We were very happy that athletes organized the Challenge and asked our own World Masters Rankings to provide the technological support and website. Many of us in the WMA, Regions and Members encouraged and helped the athlete organizers and MastersRankings.com where we could to make this a very special event for you. I hope we succeeded! We look forward to seeing you compete in a WMA event soon.
