Results from the men’s and women’s Javelin Throw Elite competitions at the annual American JavFest at East Stroudsburg South High School in East Stroudsburg, PA, this past weekend (July 16-17).
The highlight from the event came in the women’s competition where superstar Maggie Malone broke her own American Record in what should be her final tuned-up meeting ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, which start later this month.
Malone, a medal favorite in Tokyo, threw 67.40m to open the contest to improved on her previous American record of 66.82m, set in May. The mark remains the third best effort this season behind the 71.40m world leading mark of Poland’s Maria Andrejczyk.
Meanwhile, American and Malone’s fellow Olympian Michael Shuey, won the men’s event with a throw of 85.67m, which moves him to No. 4 on the U.S. all-time list.
