Five Olympians, more than 40 New Mexicans and nearly 800 athletes in all will descend upon the Albuquerque Convention Center this weekend to compete in the USA Track & Field National Masters Indoor Championships.
Athletes will range in age from 30 to as old as they can still go. They’ll include Chaunte Lowe, 32, who competed in the 2012 Olympics and is the current open U.S. record high jumper (6 feet, 7½ inches).
And the oldest is Reverend Champion Goldy, a sprinter who turned 99 a month ago.
The oldest female will be Sumi Onodera-Leonard, 87, and a U.S. Masters Hall of Fame sprinter.
