For the second time in her Athletic career, Carol LaFayette-Boyd of Regina has been named the World Masters Athletics Female Athlete of the Year. In 2022, Carol broke six world records in the women's 80+ age category. In total, she has 17 world age group records to her name. To put her astonishing athleticism and talent in perspective, Carol ran a 16.23 second 100 M race. The fastest woman ran a 10.49 seconds 100 m.
A retired social worker, Carol did not start running until her late 40s and didn’t win her first competitive track event until she was 50. This great-grandmother of four has no plans to slow down or hang up her spikes; she plans to continue running for the rest of her life.
Carol's key to longevity is her passion for staying healthy which keeps her training at her best. She says she is inspired by the women who are competing in the 100+ age category. She says she has lots of time to do that and for right now she would just like to stay healthy and do better in her times in all events.
