Rodhe goes big
Justin Rodhe, who trains at the National Throws Centre in Kamloops, threw 20.70 metres in shot put at the Lumberjack invitational Meet in Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 14.
The throw might have landed him a spot at the IAAF World Indoor Championships, which run from March 9 to March 12 in Istanbul, Turkey.
If another Canadian athlete does not throw further before the qualification period ends on Feb. 26, Rodhe will be eligible for selection.
Athletics Canada will announce the team after the qualifying period ends.
