Below are what I believe are the Pacific results from the WMA Championships in Spain. Their results presentation was not exactly the best (no composite results for field events, mixed age-divisions in some of the non-stadia events, no composite results for individual events based on performances in 1st round and semi-finals, etc.)

- 43 athletes in a total of 104 events.
- 5 individuals (all women) won a total of 6 individual world titles plus one relay title.
- 4 silver medals
- 8 bronze medals
Report from Carl Rose:
Two fine athletes became medalists at the World Masters Association’s IAAF Championships in Malaga, Spain, which took place between Sept. 4th through the 16th. Joy Upshaw from Joy’s Jackrabbits Track Club, put on a dominant performance and snared two gold medals in the 200-meter dash as well as 4 x 400 relay (pending WR). She also claimed bronze medals in the women’s 55-59 100-meter dash and 80-meter hurdles.
Tom LeGan, from the Strawberry Canyon Track Club, represented the loaded men’s 50-54 age group. He battled his way to a bronze medal in arguably the most competitive men’s 50-54 1500 field in meet history. See video below.
