Patterson's Next Move: France
Back to the grind after being on vacation for 18 days, which has to be a PR. Anyway, let’s start with an update on Kara Patterson.
I wrote a column about Patterson leading into the USA Track and Field Championships, and how her recent struggles have been mental. She then went out and won the title in women’s javelin.
She’s still not throwing for the distance that she would like, but she had the three best marks at the national meet, won her fourth straight championship, and wrapped up a spot in the World Championships later this summer. Can’t complain about that.
Now Kara is headed to France, where she will compete in a Diamond League meet Friday.
