Negri Adds To Medal Count
Emma Negri added another pair of medals to her summer medal count winning double silver medals at the Athletics Ontario U14 West Regional Championship held at the Mohawk Sports Park in Hamilton this week.
First up was shot put where she won the silver with a throw of 10.02m.
Negri’s second event was discus where Negri and fellow competitor, Jenna Tunks, put on a show for the crowd with some big throws. Emma’s personal best throw of 39.74m with the 0.75kg discus had her in the lead and was just shy of the U14 record of 40.39m.
In the very last round, Tunks out threw Negri, breaking the record with a throw of 40.41m.
Next, and last, outdoor event of the year will be the Fall Fields Fest on September 18-19 back at the Mohawk Sports Park.
