Coach Joy recently returned from the 2016 World Masters Track & Field Championships!
The Championships were held in Perth, Australia: www.perth2016.com
Over 4000 masters competitors aged 35+ raced, jumped or threw in their respected age groups. Coach Joy, age 55, competed for Team USA in the 300 meter hurdles, 80 meter hurdles and the long jump. She won all of her individual events in very exciting races! Her times and marks were her best this season.
She was also asked to race in the 4x100m relay and the 4x400m relay where both teams earned silver medals!
Coach Joy attributes her wins to using her Jackrabbits running form and remembering to have good attitude: thanking the Officials and congratulating her teammates & competitors. 🙂
Here are some of the Media Posts by Championship photographer Rob De’Avillar:
Coach Joy makes these Good Luck ribbons to give to USA teammates, International competitors and officials! She say’s, ” it’s fun to give to friends to make them happy” 🙂
