Camryn Rogers hadn’t been able to compete for almost a year. But no matter, the Richmond thrower picked up right where she left off: winning.

The Richmond athlete, now a senior at the University of California at Berkeley, sat out the 2020 indoor season in preparation for the upcoming outdoor season and Olympics. Then COVID-19 came along and derailed those plans.

Today, in the women’s weight throw, Rogers (the 2019 NCAA women’s hammer throw national champion) improved on her second-best all-time mark at the school with a throw of 21.08 metres (69 feet, two inches) during the Air Force Invitational indoor track and field meet being held this weekend at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
