Chris W. '20 competed at the USA Track and Field (USATF) Junior Olympics, which took place from July 24-30 in Lawrence, Kansas. He was very excited to finish in 7th place in his event.

Chris recently took first place in the javelin for 15/16 year old boys at the USATF Region 15 Qualifier meet in Escondido, where he competed with the best athletes in track and field from Hawaii, Nevada, San Diego and Southern California. His throw of 45.81 meters qualified him to throw at the Junior Olympics against the best throwers in the nation. Chris recently won the javelin throw for 15/16 year old boys at the California State Games with his best throw of the season at 46.38 meters, as well as the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) Region 23 meet in late June.

Chris has been throwing the javelin since he was introduced to the sport in elementary school at a Track and Field summer camp, and he has found throwing opportunities through local track clubs. This was the fourth trip to the Junior Olympics for Chris!
