Aaron Stroda Throws To National Silver

Despite coming up short of his own expectations, Kelowna’s Aaron Stroda returned from Canadian junior track and field championships today with a national silver medal.

Stroda, 18, threw a personal-best 55.25 metres to claim the runner-up spot in the (6 kg) hammer throw on Sunday in Ste. Therese, Que. That was just 14 centimetres shorter than the gold-medal throw by 19-year-old Tory Shewfelt of the University of Regina.

“I was super happy with the personal best — that’s how you want to compete in a championship event — and a silver medal is good thing,” said the 2014 Okanagan Mission Secondary School graduate. “But really, I thought I had a better throw in me. Technically, even my best throw wasn’t that great.”
