Kocsor Wins Junior PanAm Title in the Hammer Throw

Aug. 1, 2005

Redshirt freshman Boldizsar Kocsor unleashed a new personal best throw of 223-7 in the hammer to win the Junior PanAmerican title on Saturday in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Team USA went 1-3 in the men's hammer, which turned out to be a two-day affair after the event had to be suspended on Saturday midway through round five after a competitor hit the cage gate upright and broke it. The discus was also postponed from Saturday to Sunday due to equipment concerns.

The cage was repaired Saturday night, and Kocsor held on to first with his previous-day best of 68.15/223-7. Cuban Roberto Durruty snatched the silver from John Freeman of the U.S. with a final round 66.76/219-0. Freeman won bronze with a 64.58/211-10 from Saturday.

Another Bruin, Martell Munguia will also head to a championship event as he represents Mexico at the World University Games in Turkey. Munguia will compete in the 800m, with qualifying rounds on August 18 and 20, followed by the final on August 21.
