Weekly Awards

Valerie Vili earns the Performance of the Week award for her 20.57 put at the Sydney Track Classic. It beat her own meet record by nearly half a meter, and approached the Australia all-comers record of 20.69 set by WR holder Natalya Lisovskaya in 1985.

Honorable mention include Tatyana Lysenko's 75.66 hammer throw, Maria Abakumova's 68.31 javelin throw, Steve Hooker's 5.91 pole vault, and Usain Bolt's 43.58 relay leg.

The competition of the week was the men's shot put at the USATF Indoor Championships. Eight of the throwers have a seasonal best of at least 20 meters.
