Congratulations to 1956 Oyster Bay High School graduate Abe Bernstein who traveled to Toronto on July 17 and 18 to participate in the 2010 Canadian Masters Track & Field Championship Meet – and came home with plenty of gold!
Abe won the first place medals in the 70-74 Age Group in both the 400 Meters and the 800 Meters. He also ran the second leg of the 4 x 100 Meter Relay team that took first place in the 70-74 age group and equaled the Canadian age group record of 59.06 seconds in doing so. (That converts to less than 15 seconds per runner, all age 70-74!)
Abe is an active member of the Greater Long Island Running Club, and serves as the director of the Club’s 5 Kilometer Sprint for the Feinstein Institute, which will be held at the Sands Point Preserve on the morning of Aug. 14.
A long-time resident of Oyster Bay, Abe now makes his home in Manhasset.
