1st I am a former professional athlete. NFL and CFL.
2nd, I ran the time in the US and a Sanctioned USATF meet. You are not the first to bring the possible record issue to the table. The meet director was more excited than anyone. The meet director is already dealing with that issue as well as the timing system etc. In college, my best was 10.6. However, I was a football player running track if you know what I mean. Like I said I am familiar with scepticism and take no offense. I have a degree in exercise physiology and work with athletes. I do use video that shows a decline in knee lift over the last 30-35 meters of the 100 meters. I am working on that. I don't always have the time during sessions to worry about evaluating myself. I currently coach 3 wheelchair athletes that are ranked in the top 20 in the world. I run meets when I can but can't always just take off to go to Boston or wherever to run a meet. In my state we have next to nothing. I don't always have an entire free weekend. I run a non for profit "free" group on Sundays working with athletes who otherwise do not have the means or are not involved in organized sport. Many of these athletes are from of the tougher areas in and around St. Louis. Some are a very hard sell and are working through multiple issues. Still being able to run like I do serves as a means to get their attention. Then I can use sport as a vehicle to teach these athletes some of the things that will empower them to improve their current situations and lives. However, world masters records are not my movation to get better. I just want to be able to train along side of the athletes I work with and promote track as a lifetime sport.
Thanks for your help
