Throwers in Ontario have continued to break provincial records this year. It started on January 14 with Josh Linington, of the Brantford Track and Field Club. He broke a 10 year old U15, boyâ€™s weight throw record with a performance of 15.68m. Two weeks later, at the AO Combined Events Championships and Prep 2, his teammate, Alexa Windle, broke the U15 womenâ€™s weight throw record with a performance of 15.73. This breaks Trinity Tuttiâ€™s record of 15.56 set in 2014.
Most recently, Brittany Crew travelled to Ohio to compete in the Akron Invitational. She won the Womenâ€™s Shot Put with a distance of 17.91 and set a new Senior Womenâ€™s and Espoir (U24) record. This performance now places her in 8th place on the IAAF standings and is only 10cm off of the Canadian Indoor Shot Put record set 5 years ago by Julie LabontÃ©.
Congratulations to all athletes and their strong season so far.
