Winkler beats Velez to take national lead at Weightarama 2012

Published by
Martin Bingisser   on Mar 4 2012, 12:23 PM

Grace Janes (Rogers, Newport, RI) and Maggie Dufault (Pilgrim, Warwick, RI) were both just inches from their personal bests as they had a close competition for first place at the 2012 edition of Weightarama. Jones won the girl's competition with a throw of 50'08.25" and Dufault was second with 50'03.50", just an half inch under her personal best.

The boy's competition featured the second show-down of the year between national leader Joe Velez (Classical, Providence, RI) and defending national champion Rudy Winkler (Averill Park, NY) faced each other for the second time this season. Winkler won their first competition against each other in February at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational. While Velez was closer this time around, Winkler again took first place and threw a new nation-leading mark of 78'07.00". Velez was just half an inch under his personal best with his secondp lace throw of 76'11.25". The two should face off again next weekend. Velez also came back later in the day to win the 35-pound weight throw competition and improve upon his national lead with the adult implement.
