My week started with a competition in Paris on Monday June 3rd, Rome on Thursday June 6th and then I finished the week throwing on Saturday June 8th in Chicago. After spening friday flying from Rome to Chicago I wasnt sure how much was left in the tank but I was able to take all 6 throws and had a really good time. The format was mixed was mixed men and women and also the top highschool kids which made it really fun. Everyone cheered for one another and we had a nice crowd for a throws only meet. A highlight for me was my cousin who lives in the area was able to come and bring her two daughters and watch me throw live!! My throws were not anything super but consistent and my best was 59.54m. We threw in 2 flights of 16 so I was 2nd in my flight but 3rd overall. After the meet we got to hang out in downtown Chicago and watch the fireworks from the Navy Pier. I was going to stop by Oprah’s house but I figured she wasn’t home. Spending the evening with the top US throwers PRICELESS(Wild).
