Vili and Faumuina pick up more national titles

6:26 pm on 28 March 2009

World and Olympic shotput champion Valerie Vili has won her 9th national title at the New Zealand Championships in Wellington.

Vili's best throw was her 6th and last with a distance of 19.81 metres.

Beatrice Faumuina won her 16th discus title, but had some trouble doing it... she fouled her first 3 throws and would have then been eliminated had it not been for the fact that there were only 8 competitors and all 8 of them were able to get 3 more throws.

She then threw 60.03 metres with her 5th throw which gives her a B standard qualifying mark for the this year's World Championships.

Sprinter Monique Williams has completed two-thirds of the treble she's after this weekend... winning the 400 metres today to go with the 100 she won yesterday.... she'll race the 200 tomorrow.
