It may have been her own record, but hammer thrower Sultana Frizell smashed the previous meet standard at the famous Mt. Sac Relays in Walnut California ten days ago. Not only did the Perth native’s throw of 74.98m dispose of her previous meet standard of 71.63, but it also places her in third on the current IAAF top list. Frizell’s current Canadian record stands at 75.04m and was set in 2012.
Next up for Frizell is a scheduled appearance at the IAAF World Hammer Challenge event in Marrakesh, Morocco on June 8. It is expected she will then compete in Europe before returning to Moncton, New Brunswick to defend her Canadian championship at the end of June.
