Vince Costello

MALE

Male - Vince Costello - HMTC - Decathalon - by Bob Hogue: Keeping Score — Sports & Fitness — At age 60, Costello is part of the Hawaii Masters Track Club and one of the top decathletes for his age group in the nation. He’s won the national Masters title in the decathlon, pentathlon and heptathlon over the years, and this past spring he earned the national indoors heptathlon title at the Masters competition in Kenosha, Wis. Costello says his top two events "are probably the hurdles and the javelin". Despite being 60 years old, he’s no snail getting up and down the track, running the 100 meters in less than 14 seconds. "Last year, I ran sometimes with the 13- and 14-year-old boys, and I can do pretty well with them. But if you put me up against the high school kids, they would leave me in the dust," he jokes. Hawaii Masters Track Club has been around since 1971. Jack Karbens, 71, who is nationally ranked in numerous events and who has won several national Masters titles, has been with the club since 1972. The Hawaii Masters Track Club often works out Saturday and Sunday mornings at Kaiser High School in Hawaii Kai. That’s where Kevin Kruszona is the track and field coach. He’s also the current president of the HMTC, and at age 55, a decathlete just like Costello and Karbens.
