PRESIDENT OF USA TRACK & FIELD’S NEW ENGLAND ASSOCIATION ISSUES A CHALLENGE TO BOSTON 2024 ORGANIZING COMMITTEE

Brookline, MA – April 16, 2015USATF-NE, the New England association of track & field’s national governing body, USA Track & Field (USATF), today announces a public challenge from its President, Tom Derderian, for the Boston 2024 Organizing Committee. A former Olympic Trials competitor, running historian and author, Derderian issues the following challenge to those organizing the potential Olympic Games to be held in Boston in 2024:

“The Olympics originated as a track & field meet to demonstrate cooperation between nations, so here is our challenge to the academic, business and government communities to test the concept of cooperation. Boston has many colleges and many high schools and many tracks, but none of them are suitable for a full championship meet within a stadium. Spectators cannot sit in one place and watch an entire track meet but have to move to an adjacent field for the throwing events. New York has a stadium at Randall’s Island that seats 5,000 and can hold all Olympic events within sight of seated spectators. If New York City can have one, why not Boston? If we can’t make a small stadium for a single sport, how can we build a large stadium and the other facilities for all Olympic sports? Show us that you all can really work together on a small thing first. This proof of concept would go a long way toward earning the trust of at least the track & field community and maybe the rest of Massachusetts.”

Further explaining the basis for his challenge, Derderian says the 5,000 or so seat stadium allowing all spectators to view all events from their seats would prove that the disparate entities – business, academics and government – can get along and build something as big as the modern Olympic Games requires.  A small permanent track & field stadium in the Greater Boston area that can be used for big high school meets, college meets, national championships, Olympic Trials and International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) events would serve as a sound practice strategy, he says.

Derderian also observes that “None of the large Division I colleges in Boston—Boston College, Boston University, Northeastern University or Harvard University— have a suitable track. Boston has three world-class indoor tracks, but no world-class outdoor track.” He again states his challenge by questioning: “Can the business community work with the schools to make this small stadium a reality? Can the government expedite all the permit work and get local high schools to share the stadium as much as they already share the indoor track at the Reggie Lewis Track & Athletic Center, which is managed with grace and precision?”

How can the Boston 2024 Organizing Committee meet this challenge? Derderian advises they first find a place for the new track which would require the same list-making as for all Olympic venues. By meeting this challenge and organizing the location, design, building and management of a small quickly-built, permanent track & field stadium, Boston 2024 would garner support from and leave a legacy for the track & field community.

A Few Highlights: USATF Indoor Championships

By: John Oleski, Vice President, USATF-NE

Christian Blondin of Greater Boston Track Club

The USATF Indoor Track & Field Championships came to the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston last weekend. Full results can be found here. We were able to catch up with several athletes, many of them local, post-race. See below for the photos and recaps we caught live at the event.

 

Christian Blondin, age 41 from Ipswich, MA, finished 5th in the Masters Invitational Men’s 1500 Meter Run with a time of

4:06.34. Chris competes for the Greater Boston Track Club. After the race, he said he did his best to stay with the leaders. With 200 meters left, he was still with the chase pack in 4th place, but said the last 200 was “really rough.” Nonetheless, he was enthused by his experience, saying that it was a great meet and an awesome race.

Former University of Virginia star, Taylor Gilland, now living and working in the Boston area, ran an unusual race in the Men’s Two Mile Run. Through the first few laps, Taylor paced in 11th place of 13 as the leaders went through the half mile in 2:07.6 and the mile in 4:17.4. Taylor worked his way up to 9th place as the field neared the 1.5 mile mark. The pack was slowing and beginning to compress as Taylor made a bold move, surging all the way to the lead. It was not a place or pace he

could hold, and ultimately the pack came back on him as he slowly slipped back to 10th place and an 8:45.43 finish. After the race, he indicated that he just decided to take a shot at it – not knowing whether he would be able to hold on.

Dan Lowry and Steve Mangan of the B.A.A. competed in the Men’s 1 Mile Run. Both runners had posted 3:58 qualifying times for the national championships. The star-studded field included Leonel Manzano, Olympic silver medalist in the 1500m at the 2012 London Olympic Games and Matt Centrowitz, 4th in the

2012 Olympic finals. The race itself was tactical, with none of the runners approaching their PR. Dan finished 12th in 4:06.69 and Steve was 13th in 4:07.05. Dan expressed disappointment in his result, but noted that he had placed 6th in the Men’s 2 Mile the day before. Afterwards, both runners were interviewed by a Boston 2024 video team, and expressed enthusiasm about the prospect of an Olympic Games in Boston.

Emily Lipari, who lives in Boston and runs for the B.A.A., raced in the finals of the Women’s 1000 Meter Run. Though she was excited to make the finals, she was disappointed by her 9th place finish

in 2:48.16. Emily, one of the top middle distance and cross country runners in the history of Villanova, was also interviewed after her race by the Boston 2024 group.

Joanna Murphy of New Balance Boston placed 15th in the women’s 2-Mile with a time of 10:18.54.

John Trautmann, age 46 from New York City won the Masters Invitational Men’s 1500 in 3:59.47. On Feb. 14 at the B.U. Valentine Invitational, John broke the indoor M45-49 world record in the mile

with a 4:12.33 and, in the masters invitational race, was taking aim at the M45-49 1500m world record of 3:57.91. Trautmann led from the start and ran hard. In the last 400 meters, he broke away from the chase pack. Although he fell short by just over 1.5 seconds in his record attempt, he said that breaking 4 minutes was also a goal. He further stated that it was an honor to run against so many outstanding masters milers and that he hoped “everyone in the race got PRs.” Trautmann ran in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics after winning the U.S. Olympic Trials 5000m in 13:40.30.

Anselm LeBourne, age 55 of Maplewood, NJ, competed in the Master’s Invitational Men’s 1500 and

though he was 7th overall, his time of 4:13.77 destroyed the M55-59 indoor world record of 4:19.80 that he set this January. After the race, he said he had gone out so hard he thought he was done with three laps (600m) to go. He somehow managed to force himself through it and came away with an extraordinary new age group mark. He states that he wants to be the first man over age 55 to go under 2 minutes in the 800 meters.

Morgan Uceny Looks Ahead to Outdoor Season After Placing 7th in U.S. Indoor Championships Mile

By: John Oleski, Vice President, USATF-NE

Morgan Uceny of Boston, running for adidas, raced from the front in the Women’s 1 Mile Run at the USATF Indoor Track & Field Championships in Boston. Running slightly to the outside, she shared the lead through the first 6 laps as she clocked 1:12.2 at the quarter mile and 2:26.1 at the half. Over the last 300 meters, Uceny progressively slipped and ultimately dropped to 7th place, finishing in 4:38.13.

Afterwards, she was unhappy with her race. She said she hadn’t necessarily planned to run from the front but she felt the pace was slow. She questioned whether she should have responded more aggressively to Shannon Rowbury’s move to the lead, saying “once you get behind, it’s harder to make it up.” She stated that she is coming out of an injured phase, is finally healthy and is optimistic about the outdoor season.

Merrimack College’s Muscaro Places 8th in USATF Indoor Championships 300 Meter Dash

By: John Oleski, Vice President, USATF-NE

Carly Muscaro of Merrimack College

Carly Muscaro, a 19 year-old sophomore at Merrimack College, ran in the first heat of the Women’s 300 Meter Dash at the USATF Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center earlier today.

Going against professional runners, Natasha Hastings of Under Armour / NYAC and Jernail Hayes of Brooks, Carly ran well. She was out fast, showed good drive throughout the race and finished 3rd in an impressive 39.12. Overall she was 8th as the top 6 made finals.

Carly ran at Ashland H.S. and in the year and a half since high school her improvement has been amazing. At Ashland she barely ran 60 seconds to the 400m, yet last year as a freshman set Merrimack’s 400m outdoor record with a blazing 53.43. She also qualified for both the NCAA Division II indoor and outdoor championships – the first Merrimack athlete ever to qualify for nationals.

She says that every race is nerve-wracking and it is a fight to stay focused and confident, especially as a self-described “baby” on the big stage of a USA national championship.

Nonetheless, she displays strong desire and ambition as she declares that she is going after a win in two weeks at the NCAA DII championships at University of Alabama at Huntsville.

Five College Realtors 10M (2015 GP Race #1) Members ranked by AG%

Five College Realtors 10M – February 22, 2015 – 2015 GP Race #1
These age-graded results of USATF-NE members utilize the new 2015 tables published by the WMA in late January 2015. There are considerable changes on the women’s side, especially over age 55 and for the 5K and marathon, which will bring down some values by up to 5%. Changes on the men’s side are in the 1% range. Corollary is that open runners will now appear higher in the rankings than the past five years.
Over 350 USATF members competed in this race and a good number of pre-entries did not get to the start due to the weather (and injuries).

At bottom of these results are those non-members scoring over 70%.  If you see someone in that section who you believe is a member, let them know they probably haven’t renewed for 2015.
