By John Napolitan- January 7, 2008

It had been a long day at the Brown Invitational, in fact, most teams had already left the Olney-Margolies Athletic Center on the campus of Brown University as Victoria Flowers (Classical HS / RI) stepped into the throwing circle for her next to last throw of the day.

When the 20 pound weight landed, everyone knew it was something special. The officials scurried to get an accurate measure and it became apparent that it was very special--a national record! Flowers throw of 61-00.75, adding just over 2" to Maureen Griffin's 11 year old mark.

For her record performance, Victoria Flowers, has been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week of January 7.

American Track & Field - Athletes Only magazine will recognize an outstanding performance each week by American high school and college athletes during the 2007 - 2008 school year
