Are you planning to compete at the Daegu WMA Indoor Championships in March 2017?
Do you need an AMA tracksuit for the cooler weather in Daegu?
Do you need to add a polo to wear on the plane flight or a tee shirt and shorts to warm up in?
Do you need a cap to complete your outfit?
If the answer is yes to any of the above, please email Wilma at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible with the items and sizes you would need.
You can officially order in January/early February but Wilma needs to put in an order at the end of next week (Friday 9th Dec) for stock so that your requirements can be met when you do order later on.

John Oldfield has done a tremendous job over many years to set up and maintain our extensive databases. He has in recent years, also managed the list of club bests.
John is now permanently living in the UK and is retiring from this role
However, we are delighted to announce that Steve Weller will take over from John
Note that Steve cannot scour through the results of all the races you might enter, so if you think you have broken a club best you need to let Steve know
A motion was passed at the recent AMA AGM that allows recognition in the list of AMA records of marks set by athletes who are not financial members of AMA. This is to be retrospective, and hence, for example, marks set by Steve Moneghetti are now shown in the AMA records.
MAWA will follow AMA on this matter.
Both the list of current records, and the more detailed lists, have been updated since the World Championships. These show, in italics, marks set by non-financial members, where they are better than the club member mark.
Open the ‘Records Home’ tab to see the full list of records documents
