'80 Oly Trials men's 5k heats -- results

Postby Matt Poole » Wed Jun 05, 2013 9:26 am

Hi from Maryland.

I have found a partial list of the men's finishers in the two 1980 men's 5K heats, including two DNF's. However, the list is incomplete.

Can someone kindly provide the finishing time and place of Marc HUNTER, one of the unlisted runners? Better yet would be the names/places/times for runners not in the following list, but really it's the Hunter result that is most important.

The results I found on-line:

Heat 1 (first 6 qualified for final)

1. Buerkle 13:40.77
2. Jones 13:43.06
3. Liquori 13:43.59
4. MacDonald 13:43.75
5. Chapa 13:44.22
6. Geis 13:44.47
7. Salazar 13:46.51
8. Cotton 13:47.9
9. Lohman 13:57.2
10. Schwartz 14:13.9

Heat 2 (first 6 qualified for final)

1. Clary 13:47.96
2. McChesney 13:51.54
3. Ortiz 13:53.31
4. Dillon 13:53.45
5. Centrowitz 13:54.20
6. Padilla 13:55.85
7. Melancon 13:57.57
8. Scharsu 14:06.57
9. Donakowski 14:22.9
10. Fox 14:32.4
DNF: Sandoval
DNF: Wysocki

Many thanks,

Matt

gm,

Thanks for the results -- I knew the answer would materialize.

I work with Marc, and I know that race frustrated him. He'd forgotten his placing and time, though he certainly remembered walking off the track and out of the stadium as quickly as he could afterward, following his sub-par performance. Still, he expressed an interest this week in learning where he finished -- justifiably proud to have made the Trials. His son has been burning fast times in the middle distances as a high school freshman.

Regards,

Matt
