                Impressive for someone in their late 50s!

                  I found the article in a google search not on this site. I did search T&FN's site and found nothing at all.

                    unfortunately, things that appear in the links to outside headlines don't appear on the search function... if you go into the View All at bottom of that section you can manually scan for outside links; the Boston piece is currently on the second page.

                      Maybe he would have been on time for his qualifying heat - old guys are always early.

                        That's good to know. I looked per your instructions and found it.

                          • Not writing about our sport, but one of our young stars shows up in the stock photo. Why do editors like picking pictures of pole vaulters when they're in the middle of missing a bar - wouldn't a make be more visually pleasing? Unless that's a clue as to the outcome of this scenario...

                              Yes, my morning drive to work used to take me past a supermarket where, every day, a number of retired people would be waiting outside about 15 to 20 minutes before it opened.
