Breaking records is starting to become old hat for Sultana Frizell this indoor season. The two time Olympic hammer throw extended her nearly one month old Canadian record in the weight throw to a staggering 23.32 metres.
Competing at the University of Toronto’s Hall Brown Memorial, Frizell’s series included four throws in excess of her previous record of 22.00m. Friday’s event was the penultimate competition on Sultana indoor schedule. She will have one final opportunity to extend her record in a few weeks time at a competition in Indiana.
Earlier this week, world medalist Melissa Bishop continued her indoor unbeaten streak, winning the AIT International Grand Prix in Athlone, Ireland for the second year in a row. Bishop led from the gun, winning comfortably in 2:01.42. The Eganville native will round out her indoor season Saturday at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Birmingham, England.
