For the first time ever the Kitchener Record International meet will be hosting throws! This high performance meet is run by the Laurel Creek Track Club in Kitchener at Centennial staduim, the site of the 1996 National Sr. & Jr. Championships and this year's '98 National Juniors.
There will be a full compliment of throwing events (shot, discus, hammer and javelin) for both men and women. The throwing events' details are being worked out, but the meet will be open in nature with no age classes. The javelin will be this year's featured event held under the lights in the early evening. The javelin competition will be restricted to 8 throwers based on the Record's meet format (straight finals by invitation only). Based on response to the meet a pre-javelin or allcomers javelin may be arranged for earlier in the day along with the other throwing events.
Complete details are to follow shortly. Any throwing event inquiries can be made by contacting Richard parkinson at MAIMARTIN@MSN.COM or phone (H) 416-486-5529 or
(W) 416-742-3590 ext 5289.
