Heptathlete Margaritha Daehler-Stettler, 67, of Switzerland runs down the runway of the long jump, the first event on the second day of the 65-69 age division women's combined events, or heptathlon, on August 5, 2015 at the Laurent Gérin stadium in Venissieux, France during the 2015 World Masters Athletics Championships.
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 the 800 meters. Combined events are scored using an international point table, and masters scores are age-graded so they are comparable across age ranges.
