Throws are highly emotional events.
I love to watch the throws.
Valarie Allman achieved the athlete’s dream with this life changing throw.
In 2018, Valarie Allman won the US Championships. She competed in the London 2017 (28th) and Doha 2019 (7th). A seven time All-American, Valarie competed for Stanford University.
How big is this? It is huge for American throwing! Valarie Allman is only the third women thrower over 70 meters in the last ten years! We wish Valarie Allman well and hope to interview her soon!
Special shout out to Oiselle, who is the sponsor of Valarie Allman, and who was quite excited about Ms. Allman’s 3 meter PB! We look forward to seeing Valarie compete in the global champs in the future.
Good morning to your new American record holder in the discus (with a 3m PR toss of 70.15m), Haute VolÃ©e athlete Valarie Allman!
