Waiting for more details - but R5 Live has just reported Sophie Hitchon broke the old British record twice, breaking 71 m and getting the Olympic A standard, at Chula Vista.

Let's hope the cage was in the right position this time. :twisted: :lol:

Ohh that's brilliant! Can't wait for more details. I know that Chula Vista is a discus thrower's paradise, but I didn't know it was as good for the hammer.

Excellent news. Clearing 70 by a good margin is proper international class throwng.

That puts her 12th in the world rankings. Everyone ahead of her is at least 3 years older. Exciting!
