National Javelin Carnival Success

Posted: May 30, 2016 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

Jasmine Walker (U15) competed at the National Javelin Carnival
Competition at Loughborough on Sunday, throwing against top-ranked
athletes. She finished 10th out of the 20 athletes, many of whom were in
the top year of the age group. She achieved a throw of 30m 46cm, her
first throw over the magic 30m mark and leap-frogged back to the top of
the WM Pof10 rankings; also moving up to 38th in the UK. This was
valuable experience for her in that she was able to watch how the top
throwers, (including the No1 and No2 UK-ranked athletes Bethany Moule
and Annabel Peach), warmed up and prepared for the event.
