Leo O’Connor of Binghamton, NY won the 55-59 age group at the Masters Empire State Games 5k on July 24, 2010. His official time was 21:56 in very windy, hot and humid conditions. Leo finished 25 seconds ahead of the 2nd place finisher in his age group.
“My last 5k in October 2009 was 22:45. So today was a 49 second improvement. I think today will be a good start for my re-learning to race process,” said Leo.
