Indoor Track

With no indoor meets in Hong Kong there has never been much interest in running indoor track. But the outdoor track season winds up with our local veterans meet on Oct. 27 and 28, and after that two of the next three big meets will be indoors.
Daegu is holding a one-day indoor meet November 25. There are direct flights from Hong Kong, so you might get away with only one day of annual leave. It will be a mini-meet with just a 60m, 200m, 400m and 3000m plus a high jump, long jump and shot put. It's open to anyone over 18, but there will be age groups for those over 35. If you would like to try competing indoors, Daegu is a good place to do it. It's a beautiful venue that was used for the IAAF world championships a few years ago.
After Daegu the WMA indoor world championships will be held in Poland March 24-30. But those are limited to persons over 34.

Entries close tomorrow.

Re: Veterans' Indoor Track Championships

The WMA indoor track championships will be held in Poland March 24 through 30. Hong Kong has been represented in the last few championships (in France, Hungary, Finland) including a team of more than 100 in Korea two years ago. So far we have 40 "definite maybes" for the 2019 team.

Indoor track includes all the usual track and field events except the steeplechase, but in addition this meet includes a half marathon outdoors on the road, as well as a cross country and a 10Kwalk.

Complete information is at www.wmaci2019.com The entry deadline is January 29.

Peter Lam went under 59 in his 400m heat, a recent-years PB, but it wasn't enough to qualify for the semis.

HK has 3 in the 60m heats today at o9:20 Poland time (7 hours behind HK) and then 5 racewalkers race 3000m at 13:00.

Re: Veterans' Indoor Track Championships Day 2

Peter ran another ryPB in his 60m heat but missed qualifying by 0.02 seconds. Willie Kung and Eddie Wong both went through to today's semis.
A beautiful, hilly cross country course, all in the forest. Light rain. Sheila Purves finished in the middle of about 28 W60s.
Several men in a series of 3000m walks on a track banked like a wok. Best result was 5th (and a HK veterans' record) for Sahn Hahng Tai Bo in the M75s and a big PB and 7th for Raymond Fung in the M60s.
Streaming today from 10:45 Poland time: 60m semis, then 5 HK women in a series of racewalks.

Re: Veterans' Indoor Track Championships Day 3 MEDAL

Catherine Kwan is officially the world number three in the W60 3000m walk. Her bronze yesterday was our first at these championships. Cheng Up Ming and Moon Choi were 4th and 6th, so we have a chance of a team medal in the 10Kwalk.

Re: Veterans' Indoor Track Championships Day 4

With Mike Capper recovering from surgery we had no one in yesterday's 10K road race. The racewalkers all went to Auschwitz. We hope that they will be released in time for Friday's 10K walk.

Re: Veterans' Indoor Track Championships Day 5

A day of 200m heats. Exciting to watch. Most of our athletes did not go through, but Glory Yau was delighted to set a new HK W40 record of 30.26. Mick Wong qualified for today's semi-final.

Re: Veterans' Indoor Track Championships Day 6 - 3 MEDALS

A big day for HK on the roads. Catherine Kwan and Moon Choi were 2nd and 3rd in the W60 10K walk. With Cheng Ip Ming, that also earned them a team silver medal. Great for the athletes, but credit too to the Racewalking Association and Sahn Hahng Tai Bo clubs for running an extensive racewalking program that allows little Hong Kong to take on France, Germany and the other big racewalking powers.
