Connecticut Hammer Throw Championship

Eric Bottelsen (Brookfield, CT) and Danika Okasia (Bloomfield, CT) were this year’s winners at the Connecticut Hammer Throw Championship on Wednesday. Okasia faced very close competition from state leader Faith Estelle (Bloomfield, CT), but a personal best in the first round was able to hold on for the win by less than two feet. It look a late fifth round effort for Bottelsen to take the lead, but in the end he won more convincingly. By throwing a new personal best he distanced himself from the competition by a dozen feet.
