Shadae Lawrence Smashes National Discus Record

Shadae Lawrence smashed her own three-week-old national record onSaturday when she threw a    massive 65.05m to win the women's discus throwevent at Mountain West Conference outdoors track and field championships at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Fresno, California.

 

The Colorado State University (CSU) senior added an incredible 1.16m to the 63.89m that she had thrown at Mt Sac Relays in Torrance, California on April 20, setting a number of new records in the process.

 

The former Edwin Allen High and Hydel High thrower, who transferred from Kansas State in August 2018, set a new Mountain West Championship record, bettering the 59.92m set by Kiah Hicks, also of CSU in 2015, and also beat the all-time Mountain West mark she had set last month.

 

Saturday's throw that came in the first round ranks her number five in the world on the IAAF performance charts and is also the best in the NCAA by almost three metres.
