Wolter, Whalen Qualify For International Finals

Liverpool's Chelsea Whalen has qualified for the shot-put final at the World University Games in Kazan, Russia. The 20-year-old had a top throw of 15.36 metres, good enough for a chance to throw for a medal. The shot-put final will be held later today. Meanwhile, a Conquerall Mills native has set a new provincial record in the steeplechase. Tobias Wolter ran the 2,000 metre steeplechase event in five minutes, 51 seconds at the IAAF World Youth Track and Field Championships in Donetsk, Ukraine. With the time, Wolter also qualified for tomorrow's final.
