Murchison continues with success at shot put

In North Carolina the reigning Texas Class 3A shot put state champion Daniella Murchison competed with 49 representatives from across the nation at the US Jr. Olympics.

In her best event she threw for over 12 meters which was good enough to land her on the medal stand with a fifth place finish.

When she won her state title she threw a personal best and if she would have matched that in this event today she would have earned a silver medal.
