UW All-American Now Canada's Best

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

As mentioned in the recap on GoHuskies, former Husky Brad Walker captured the U.S. pole vault title today at the USA Track Championships in Eugene. However, that was not the only national title won today by a Husky track (and in this case field) star.

Kyle Nielsen, a junior-to-be, claimed the javelin title at the Canadian National Championships in Toronto today. Nielsen threw 236-feet, 3-inches on his second attempt, just barely short of his lifetime best, and won by nearly six feet.

A native of Langley, B.C., Nielsen earned his first All-America honor two weeks ago with a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Another current Husky, Ryan Vu, will compete in the pole vault finals tomorrow in Toronto.
