And a record has fallen.
Harvard’s Nikki Okwelogu threw a HUGE personal best in the shot put preliminary round – 56-02, a new personal best by 2 feet, meaning it is a new League and conference meet record. The throw moves Okwelogu u to #9 IN THE COUNTRY.
Can she go farther?
Meanwhile, after one flight of the women’s triple jump, defending champion Nadia Eke of Columbia leads with a distance of 43-02 1/2 – ties her personal best and is the 3rd best distance in conference meet history. We still got the finals to go in that event as well.
