On her second throw, she tossed the implement 68.16m, or 223-07 1/2 for us English units folk, breaking her mark that she set last year of 67.75m (222-03 1/4). The event is still ongoing at this time, but other hammer updates include a new Columbia school record for Joanna Koronios as she threw 181-00 1/2 to make it to the hammer finals.
