At the age of 85, it is very difficult to run, let alone jump. Christel Donley does both and can claim to be the best the United States for four different Track and Field disciplines. In the 85+ division, Donley ranks #1 in the 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, the triple jump, and high jump. With the 100-meter dash and 200-meter dash, Donley is ranked #4 in the World, respectively. Donley’s high jump equaled the existing world record. Donley gives back by officiating at different levels, including the NCAAs and master competitions.
