Lauren Bruce, 19, is heading to Bydgoszcz to take part in the World Under-20 Athletic Championships. Bruce bettered the international qualifying distance at the nationals and recent Australian championships and will now represent New Zealand as she competes against others from around the world. She took up hammer throwing five years ago and her 58m throw has her ranked as the second nationally and to throw that far she practices up to five times a week. Bruce juggles practice with studying full time for a Bachelor of Science, majoring in food science. Getting into the team has been a goal for several years and is looking forward to competing. “It is a privilege to be able to have the opportunity to represent New Zealand on the world stage and I am looking forward to the experience and the challenges it will bring,” she said. Bruce is heading over to Poland on a month long trip in July to compete and hopes to bring home a gold. She has set her sights on competing in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. your LOCAL Sports THE HOME OF GOOD BAKING DAILY BREAD White, Wheatmeal, Grain NO LIMIT!
