In an article from Sports Illustrated, I learned about Sophia Rivera. She is a student at Brentwood High School in Missouri. At the World’s Youth Track and Field Meet in Cali, Columbia, this summer, she set a record in the shot put. Her throw was 58’10”. Not only was she competing in the shot put, she also finished 8th at this meet in the javelin. She was the only athlete in the meet to double.In early June Sophia won the state shot put in 2A with a throw of 51 + feet. I don’t believe that Miss Rivera has decided at the time this article is being written where she will go to college. She has burst onto the world scene in just the last year, so I am sure she didn’t expect to have this much success so soon. We wish her luck.
