Bruins Face Another Doubleheader this Weekend
By: UCLA Athletics

Feb. 15, 2013

The men's and women's indoor track and field teams look ahead once again to back-to-back meets this coming weekend. On Saturday, thrower Julian Wruck will represent UCLA at the Claremont Winter Throws Invitational and 39 Bruins will compete at the annual Run for the Dream Invitational the following day in Fresno, CA.

Wruck, a redshirt junior, will be making his official Bruins debut this Saturday. The Australian native transferred to UCLA from Texas Tech following the 2011 track and field season, the one in which he won the NCAA Outdoor discus crown as well as the Big 12 title in the discus event. In 2012, Wruck competed unattached during his redshirt season. Following the collegiate season, Julian competed for Australia in the discus at the 2012 London Olympic Games. He will look to find success in Claremont this Saturday.

On Sunday, the Bruins are hoping to build upon the success the team found last year in Fresno at the Run for the Dream Invite. In 2012, they posted four wins and two meet records in this indoor competition. Junior All-American Alec Faldermeyer posted a gigantic throw of 67-6.25 on his first throw of the competition and never looked back, setting the tone for what was a big day for the Bruins. Faldermeyer will not be defending his title in Frenso this weekend.

Returning Bruins include multi-eventers Marcus Nilsson and Dominic Giovannoni, distance runners Jacob Wood, Alec Govi and David McDonald and sprinter Wally Rodriguez. The women did not compete in this competition last season.
