Riassunto: It all began in 1968, when prominent civil lawyer David Pain introduced and implemented the idea of age-group competition for track and field. What began as a special mile run soon expanded into North American, then world, meets. This is the first book-length account of how the Masters Track and Field program (for men over the age of 40 and women over 35) was started, how it developed nationally and internationally, and where it is headed in the future. Key pioneer promoters of the sport are profiled. In addition to covering how the movement grew and spread, the work reviews the effects of aging on performance and how the event standards and scoring were adjusted to accommodate aging. Current leaders discuss the most recent plans for the future of Masters Track and Field.
Sinossi: This is an account of the Masters Track and Field programme (for men over 40 and women over 35). Written by Leonard T. Olson, who was both a competitor and an administrator in the programme, the book looks at how it was started, how it developed and its future direction.
