Omar Wright was runner up at the Rice Twilight Meet with his third 2.10 meter high jump clearance this season.

Michael Letterlough has extended his Cayman Islands national record in the hammer throw for the second week running.

And on this occasion he reached the 60 metre plateau with a toss of 60.66m.

Competing at his home base in Kamloops, British Columbia in the Kamloops Throws Fest, Letterlough set his new personal record on the first day of this unique event, which offers three opportunities to compete in a throws discipline over two days.

He went back on day two with his second-best ever measurement of 59.48m.
