GH#1BloggaNEWS: Trinidad wins GOLD in mens javelin #I4tandt
S/O to Trinidad’s Keshorn Walcott,
for becoming the Olympic champion in men’s javelin.
Walcott won the competition with a throw of 84.58 to set a National record
and became the youngest champion in javelin history.
This is so historical as this is the 1st gold since Hasley Crawford won the 100m
at the 1976 summer games in Montreal.
After his sensation win he appeared for post-olympics interview.
“I’m more than stunned,”
“I just went into the final to enjoy it, so to come out with the gold medal is a feeling
I can’t describe right now.“
“I know everyone is proud of me,” he continued. “I’m just thankful for all the support. I’m going back to the Games Village to celebrate with the team, and we’re leaving (today), so we’ll celebrate in Trinidad too. I know they’re going mad in Toco.” -Walcott
