USATF Junior Championships (IN)

Nike Outdoor Champions Walter Henning (St. Anthony’s, South Huntington, NY) and Emily Bernhardt (Lassiter, Marietta, GA) won again this weekend at the USATF Junior National Championships. Henning also broke his own national 6kg record by two inches with a throw of 235’00”.

Henning also has qualified for the August’s World Junior Championships in Beijing. The top twoathletes in each event are normally eligible to represent the US, but each athelte must also meet the minimum qualifying standard of 67.50m (6kg) or 60m (16#) for men and 56m (4kg) for women. Neither Bernhardt and runner-up Megan Maloney (University of Oreogn) both have bests just under the standard.
