c&p from last thread on this topic
I believe I saw about 25 perhaps as many as 30 Indoor records in MSG
My first Millrose was in '57 or 58. I think there was a walk WR that first meet but not sure. I do remember John Thomas going 7 foot in '59 and Hayes Jones 7 flat the next year.
I've only missed a few Indoor meets in MSG since 1960, so if it was set in NYC/Meadowlands I was there- missed 67-68 in Army, one or two in the 80s and a couple around the turn of the century when I was in the hospital.
At one time we had NYAC, Millrose. AAU Champs, AAU Scholastic Champs, Metropolitain Intercollegiate, Knights of Columbus, IC4A, VitalisOlympic, ITA Pro and the Colgates series final meets
Now it is the lone Millrose and that is hanging on by a thread a very thin thread.
not so many WR outdoors
Saw Frank Budd WR 9.2 yards at Downing Stadium cinders of course
Burrell 9.90m Downing 1990 on allweather surface autotime
and Bolts 9.72 at Icahn( almost the same footprint as Downing)
a couple of drug takedowns wiped at least one relay from my list
Worlds Best was the term---not sure what the rules for "seeing a roadrace/marathon" but was at the finish for Beth Bonner in Philly in the spring of `71 and going sub 3 in the fall in NYC, Grete's races in 1978/9 and the whatever distance '80 race.
I was at BostonAA for some 1970s runs and I think in one the womans race was one but for the life of me I have no idea who.
I should have kept a list!!!
