It was a Saturday that Camryn Rogers won’t soon forget.

While there have been countless other weekends in which the Richmond hammer thrower has raised the bar, this one could possibly have earned her a trip to the Olympic Games.

At the West Coast Classic in Eugene, Ore. (a community long one of the most appreciative of track and field dating back to the introduction the Oregon Relays), the McMath Secondary grad achieved the Olympic standard in the women’s hammer throw with a throw of 73.09 metres. It came on her first throw of the meet to pass the Olympic standard of 72.50 metres.

Her career-best, the mark lifted the University of California-Berkeley senior to No. 4 all-time in the NCAA.
