NCAA Championships: Gittens and Champagnie finish in Top-10 of Heptathlon

NCAA Outdoor Championships (SPECIAL COVERAGE)


Trinidad & Tobago’s Tyra Gittens and Jamaican Ayesha Champagnie had top-10 finishes in the Women’s Heptathlon at the NCAA Outdoor Championships at historic Hayward Field, Oregon, USA earlier today.

Both women were in 3rd and 5th place respectively heading into the final event, trailing eventual winner Georgia Ellenwood by just over 200 points.

But as it does so many times in the heptathlon, the grueling 800m shook up a close pack and both the Texas A&M freshman and the University of Minnesota junior fell to 8th and 9th after finishing down the pack in 20th (2:29.95) and 15th (2:25.79) overall in the two-lap event.

More to come …..
