Into the Net

Into the Net

Men’s Results | Women’s Results The weight throw is one of those sporting events where you don’t want to get your implement stuck in the netting.  Well, Cornell’s Stephen Mozia has now done that twice, as he has thrown his weight up so high that it gets caught up in the net above the throwing circle (about [...]

Like here – Princeton’s Emily de La Bruyere managed to bleed through her shoes en route to [...]


Rematch

Rematch

Isn’t a packed house a beautiful sight?  Unfortunately, we don’t have any say in the seating or viewing arrangements so we will just have to enjoy the meet from whatever viewpoint that we can.  We’re crammed in to the crow’s nest with the timer, sitting on some random box.  My butt is going to hurt [...]
