Camryn Rogers is through the final of the women’s hammer throw at the IAAF Under-20 World Championships.

Rogers, 19, of Richmond needed only one attempt in today’s (July 12) qualifying round to advance to Saturday’s championship round at the meet in Tampere, Finland; about 178 kilometres north of Helsinki. Rogers’ first and only attempt resulted in a toss of 62.99 metres, just shy of her personal best of 65.61 set April 27 at the University of Berkeley.

Having just completed her first year of an athletic scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley, the longtime member of the Richmond Kajaks Track and Field Club is one of Canada’s emerging track and field elite.

Rogers reached the top of the podium at last year’s Under-20 Pan-American Track and Field Championships in Trujillo, Peru with a meet-best mark of 63.42 metres.

•Another Richmond track and field star was also back in the spotlight recently, as Olympic racewalker Evan Dunfee strode to first place in the men’s 20,000 metre racewalk final at the recent Canadian Track and Field Championships in Ottawa. Dunfee’s winning time was one hour, 27 minutes, 11.67 seconds.
