    German Masters athletes broke two age group world records, two European records and several German records during the perfectly organized three-day 2020 GMACI in Erfurt.

    The world records were set by Petra Herrmann (W60) in the triple jump (10.11)and by the German M85 4x200m relay team (2:57.32, Eduard Bscheid, Herbert E. Müller, Walter Matthes und Helgo Staack). Herbert E. Müller clocked a new M90 age group 800m European record crossing the line in 4:13,39. Golf Geese lowered his own M75 European record at 60m hurdles, clocking 10.32.

    Wolfgang Ritte (M65) again won the pole vault (3.55) superiorly. In the 60m hurdles he clocked 9.84 – a good time compared to the 2015 European mark of 9.36 by Valerliy Davydov from Russia and the German record of 9.47 by Rolf Geese.

    Two weeks before before he turned 85, Lothar Huchthausen demonstrated with a javelin throw of 33.62 metres the future claim to the M85 European record, which is currently held by the German Klaus Langner with 31.72 metres.

    A remarkable result was achieved by Andy Dittmar (M45) with a new German record of 18.33 metres in the shot put (7.26 kg).

    Barbara Gähling  set a W55 German record in the 400 meters, clocking in at 63.66,close to the W55 world record 62.11, held by British Caroline Powell.

    In the run-up to the German Championships, Herbert E. Müller broke the M90 indoor world record in the 200m (40.19) and the M90 European 400m record (101.08 sec).

    Due to a rule error the German M55 4x200m relay team with Hans-Markus Liesicke, Lutz Naschke, Thorsten Poschwatta und Roland Gröger was disqualified in Erfurt. The four runners had previously set a M50 4x400m relay indoor world record in Berlin, finishing in 4:06.93.
