OPSO Congratulates Kimora Daniel on her Junior Olympic Success!
Kimora Daniel, daughter of Cpl Roderick & Sarita Daniel, claimed her second national title and record in July at the 46th USATF National Junior Olympics in Baltimore, MD, a stepping stone for many of today’s Olympic stars.
Kimora, an athlete with Peak Performance Track Club, shattered last year’s shot-put record of 6.69 meters by throwing 7.34 meters which was nearly 3 feet ahead of other competitors in her division at this year’s event. Placing her in first place, sub-bantam division (8-under) in shot-put. Coach Dennis Groll stated “She actually broke it three different times. She kept throwing it farther and father.”
Kimora also set a new national record in javelin by throwing 18.55 meters in the sub-bantam division breaking last year’s record of 18.13 meters, making her throw nearly one meter further than her nearest competitor.
