Myra Perkins IAAF World Youth Championships

Myra Perkins progressed through the Hammer qualifying rounds on day one of the 6th IAAF World Youth Championships in Sudtirol, Italy (6th-12th July).

Scottish Senior Championships silver medallist Perkins - who finished third in the Aviva England Athletics Under-20 Championships a fortnight ago - was only 63cm short of her lifetime best when qualifying in third from pool B with her first throw of the competition.

The standard for progression through to the final (18.00 BST, Thursday 9th July) was set at 55.00m or the best 12 athletes, and Perkins starts as the fourth best qualifier.
