The Best Time For A Big Throw
Congratulations Leif. As reported on the BYU Athletics site:
BYU junior Leif Arrhenius crushed his personal record in the weight throw, earning All-American honors with a fourth-place finish at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championships on Saturday.
Arrhenius, who came into the meet seeded thirteenth, measured a throw of 21.56 meters, a solid improvement over his previous seasonal best of 20.91 meters set two weeks ago at the Mountain West Conference Championships. It’s the second-consecutive All-American honors in the indoor weight throw and third such honor overall for the native of Orem, Utah, improving on last season’s eleventh-place finish in the same event. Arrhenius is also the two-time defending MWC champion in the weight throw and shot put.
