After improving on the school record in the weight throw at the Don Kirby Elite, Sun Devil senior Magdalyn Ewen followed up her performance Friday with another phenomenal one as she launched the world-leading mark in the shot put to win the competition Saturday in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Ewen won the shot put with a throw of 19.20m/63-0.00 feet, nearly two feet better than her previous personal best and Sun Devil school record she recorded a couple of weeks ago in Texas.
With the mark, she not only extends her lead in the conference and NCAA, both by nearly seven feet, but also takes the world lead by two feet and moves to third all-time in collegiate history.
The 2017 hammer throw champion is one of just four women in collegiate track and field history to record a mark in the indoor shot put of more than 19 meters. Only former Mississippi national champion and Olympian Raven Saunders, and 2012 Olympian from Oklahoma Tia Brooks have recorded better throws than Ewen. SUN DEVILS
