Braheme Days Breaks American Junior Shot Put Record
By: UCLA Athletics

CHULA VISTA, Calif. – UCLA freshman Braheme Days Jr., broke the America Junior outdoor record in the shot put this past weekend at the 2014 Imperial Section of USATF Championships held at the Olympic Training Center.

Days, who redshirted the outdoor season for the Bruins and was competing unattached, threw 69-5.25 (21.16m) on his second attempt to break the record of 67-4.75 (20.54m). Days posted two marks over the old record as he also tossed the 6k weight 67-11.25 (20.71m) on his fifth attempt.

The old record was held by Sean Shields. He posted the mark in Kingston, Jamaica on July 16, 2002. USA Track & Field notes another mark of 67-9 (20.65m) by Shields that he threw five days before in Nassau, Bahamas, but the mark is pending. Like Days, Shields was coached by John Frazier.

Days also threw the discus and placed third with a mark of 188-9.25. Also competing unattached for the Bruins was Zachary Thomas, who placed second with a wind-aided jump of 24-00.25. He jumped a wind-legal 23-5 as well.
