Presidential Run

      When it comes to making a strong “Presidential Run”, most folks think of a political scenario where several candidates form campaigns, hire several staffers, raise an enormous amount of money for TV ads, Radio ads, and opportunities to destroy their political rival.  And few would think of any relationship to the 100m High Hurdles…except for perhaps Max Comer from the Country Mills Eagles (Pictured Above), who did not use any forms of media, didn’t spend any time Fundraising, hired no additional help, but did manage to destroy his competition, as he is seen here leading the pack early in the 100m Midget Boy’s High Hurdles, as he catches the eyes of many spectators in attendance that day.  In an effort to prove some versatility, and a command of his campaign on the track during the 6th Annual President’s Open, Max also took 1st Place in the Midget Boy’s 200m Intermediate Hurdles, as well.  Although is still needs a few years of maturity to be elgible to hold the High Office in the land, as one must be at least 35 years of age, Max is well on his way to make a case for his bid.  As this Presidential Campaign came to a close, more than 75 records were broken, of which more than 50% were Liberty Tour records. There were fantastic performances from all age divisions (Youth, Scholastic, Open, & Master’s), and in a vast array of events. According to Executive Producer of the Liberty Tour, Anthony Mills, “We are now in our 6th season of the Liberty Tour, and we are a bit surprised to keep seeing so many records fall at each of the stops along the Tour.” He adds, “With the Adirondack Championships up next on the Tour, it makes me wonder if this trend will continue. I sure hope so!”

     As noted, the Adirondack Championships are the next stop of the Empire State Liberty Tour Track & Field Series. This is the first year that the Junior Olympic and Open & Master’s Championships have been combined in the same meet. It should be interesting to see how this new schedule plays out. Be sure to make a point of being there, as you will not want to miss out on any of the Championship performances of 2010.
