Last week at the East Regional Track and Field meet I was really happy to qualify for al three throwing events. The top 16 competitors in Eastern Ontario were there. I’ve been working hard and it’s a good thing since the competition is a lot harder as a Junior (grade 10) than it was last year as a Midget (grade 9) and I can only imagine how much harder it will be next year as a Senior when it’s both grade 11 and grade 12. The top 4 competitors in each event move on to the finals at OFSAA next week. I think I’m the only girl that qualified from Eastern Ontario to qualify for all three events.
- 1st for shot put
- 2nd for discus – set a PB
- 3rd place javelin
I was excited to throw a PB in discus. I’m probably more comfortable throwing the shot put since the motions are more similar to to some of the motions in Taekwon-do but I absolutely love the javelin. It’s such a big challenge for me and I’m determined to improve my distances. I love all the technical aspects of it. The bigger the challenge, the more I like it. The discus is starting to get a bit better but I need so much more practice.
It was nice to see most of the same girls from last year and I’m sure at OFSAA it will be the same. Everyone was a bit nervous but we still had a good time together – even in the pouring rain 🙂
This is only the beginning for me…I want to compete in track meets all summer and hopefully qualify for the Junior Nationals in P.E.I. this August 🙂
