Kim Mickle breaks Australian Record

The Australian javelin record belongs to Kim Mickle after she threw 66.83m to win at the Melbourne World Challenge meeting.

Hitting her record-breaking mark in the third round, Mickle’s performance was in response to a 63.58m effort from Mitchell to hit the lead in the second round. Unrivalled for the remainder of competition, the performance brings to life the dream of a Little Athlete who took up the spear as a junior.

“I don’t feel like it has even happened, I can’t say that it’s a relief or anything like that because it doesn’t feel real, but when I get home and I look back at the tape I think I will begin to understand what I have done and how great it is,” Mickle said.
