With some 50, 000 men and women competing worldwide, and spectators numbering in the tens of thousands, Masters-level track and field proves that athletes of any age may be recognized by their passion for sports, their interest in fitness, and their skill. In this book-length account of track and field competition by men over 40 and women over 35, the leaders of the Masters program discuss its growth since 1968 and the role of the older athlete in the world of sport. The work also reviews the effects of aging on performance and explains the adjustments of standards and scoring.... even six by discretion of the meet director. The four-throw minimum thus was inserted into the USATF Masters rulebook ... The biggest question was how to set up proper age-grading tables for the older athletes. Who would tackle this mess?
