Weightarama 2008 (RI)

Patrick Onye (Classical, Providence, RI ) set a new meet record at Weightarama 2008 this past weekend. Onye was just inches away from setting a new personal best and easily won the boy’s competition. Mike Gama (Bishop Hendricken, Warwick, RI) placed second with an impressive three foot personal best. Not only did Gama move up to third on the national list, he also eclipsed 70 feet for the first time.

Victoria Flowers (Classical, Providence, RI) was also in good form once again. She won the competition by over seven feet with a toss of 59’04.00″, which also set a meet record. Bethany Karter-O’Brien (Waterville, ME) also set a big personal best for second place.

In the boy’s 35-pound weight throw, yet another meet record was set by Patrick Onye. This time, Onye surpassed his own record set last year. He ended up setting a new personal best of 58’08.50″.
