2016 World Junior Championships: Men’s Qualification Results

Hammer throw action started at the World Junior Championships on Wednesday with the qualification round for the junior men’s hammer throw. Both Bobby Colantonio and Adam Kelly both made it into the finals by producing the 10th and 11th best marks of the day. The top 12 qualified. Colantonio added a little extra drama to the process though as he needed his third and final attempt to move up enough to secure qualification. Just missing the finals was former Rhode Island thrower Owen Russell. Now a freshman at Brown University, Russell competes for Irish team and his performance within six inches of the Irish national junior record, which was then broken later in the competition by Adam Patrick King.
The finals will take place on Friday. In the meantime the junior women’s competition will begin on Thursday with qualification round featuring national leader Joy McArthur and Sade Olatoye.
