(Grand Rapids, Mich.) Three-time NAIA All-American thrower, Joel Leong continued training after graduation with the goal of moving to the next level. Friday at the Aquinas College Ernie Mousseau Classic, he took a big step in that direction.

Competing for only the second time this season, Leong had a great series in the hammer throw. After a foot foul and a safety throw in the preliminary round, Joel sent the 16 pound ball over the 200' mark. "Everything felt good and I wasn't pushing that hard," Leong said. On his final attempt, Joel got more speed from his three spins through the circle before launching the hammer 214' 9". That mark bettered the USATF "B" qualifying standard of 213' 3" putting Leong on the board for the U.S. Championships in June.

Leong took first by over 26 feet. CU's Bryant Langdon placed tenth with a mark of 137' 1".
