Whalen Misses Out On Shot-put Final In Oregon

Liverpool's Chelsea Whalen narrowly missed the shot-put finals at the NCAA Division-One Track and Field Championships. The 20-year-old junior at Florida State University had a high throw of 16.32 metres, less than half a metre from a berth in the final nine. She finished in 13th spot at the meet in Eugene, Oregon. Following the shot-put, Whalen said she was a little disappointed because she was confident in her preparation and enjoyed success already this season. She adds, she's hungry for a podium finish next year and looks forward in building off of her results this week. Next up for Whalen will be the Canadian Track and Field Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick from June 20-23.
