The 2019 European Masters Champion in the 200m, Steve Peters of Middlesbrough, UK, won his 39th successive sprinting crown since 1994 this weekend, running a 25.56 to take the title.
Peters’ time is extremely impressive, for several reasons. First, he had already run 100m and 400m events earlier in the meet. Second, it’s within striking distance of the current M65 world record held by American Paul Edens at 24.73.
And in case you was wondering just how successful, take a look at this very impressive list of medals:
Peters was also a member of the British 4x400m team, who finished in 4:10.87, just outside of the masters European record. The runner is an elite sports psychiatrist for the British national cycling team.
