MSU's Thompson claims bronze

Starkville Daily News - - SCORECARD -

LON­DON, U.K. – One throw was all Cur­tis Thompson needed to bring home Mis­sis­sippi State's third in­ter­na­tional medal in the javelin this year.

The school record holder launched the im­ple­ment 75.47 me­ters (247-7) on his first at­tempt at the Athletics World Cup in Lon­don, Eng­land. That was his best of the day and earned him a bronze medal. He fin­ished be­hind the Ger­man Ju­lian We­ber and Poland's Marcin Krukowski, who each threw over 80.00 me­ters (262-5).

Thompson scored six points for Team USA, which won the in­au­gu­ral event with a fi­nal score of 219 points. The World Cup fea­tured one male and one fe­male ath­lete from eight par­tic­i­pat­ing na­tions in each event.

Events were scored in an 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 for­mat, rather than the more com­mon 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 for­mat used at the NCAA and SEC Cham­pi­onships, then com­bined be­tween the men's and women's events to de­clare a sin­gle cham­pion na­tion.

For­mer Bull­dog Ffion Price was also in ac­tion over the week­end, win­ning the Welsh 1500 me­ter cham­pi­onship in 4:19.17. Price's crown gives cur­rent and for­mer Bull­dogs six na­tional cham­pi­onships in 2018. Ma­jor League Baseball
