Heptathlete Marianne Maier, 72, of Austria, competes in the long jump event on the second day of the women's combined events, or heptathlon, on August 5, 2015 at the Laurent GÈrin stadium in Venissieux, France during the 2015 World Masters Athletics Championships.
Maier won her 70-74 division with a score of 6034, which did not break her own existing W70 world record of 6218.
The Championships, which include track & field events (as well as race walking, marathon, cross country, half marathon and combined events) contested by athletes of 35 ages and over divided into 5-year age divisions, are being held at multiple locations in Lyon, France from August 4 through 16, 2015.
The second day of heptathlon competition includes the long jump, javelin and 800 meters. Combined events are scored using an international point table, and masters scores are age-graded so they are comparable across age ranges.
