Frizell finishes 5th at Continental Cup

It was a disappointing day in Marrakech for hammer thrower Sultana Frizell as she struggled with her form at the IAAF Continental Cup. The Canadian record holder opened with a throw of 68.34m before improving on each of her following three throws to finish with a best mark of 70.06m. The distance would place her in fifth overall in the eight person competition and earn her $5000 USD for her efforts.

The competition mark’s the end of Frizell’s season which has seen her improve upon her own Canadian record (75.73m), pick up her second consecutive Commonwealth Games gold medal and finish the season ranked fourth on the IAAF Top List – the highest ranking by any Ottawa Lion in the club’s 40 plus year history.
