The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY BRIAN SACKS

ATH­LET­ICS DEENA Kas­tor tied the US and World 5K Mas­ters record of 15:48, win­ning the women’s Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose 5K.

Hav­ing placed third over­all, Kas­tor said: “I gave it my best and there was not one point on the course I could have pushed harder to get a faster time.”

Kas­tor, 42, set the World Mas­ters half marathon record of 1: 09:37 in the same event, held in Philadelphia, last year. One of the world’s great­est Jewish ath­letes, she won the Olympic marathon bronze medal in 2004 and the Lon­don Marathon in 2006.

David Stone helped Shaftes­bury Bar­net win the Na­tional un­der-15 Road Re­lay. Stone, who is 13 and at­tends JFS, com­pleted the first leg in 12:40.
