Caroline at World Youth - Qualification Round

North's Caroline Ehrhardt (Espanola, ON) competed today at the 6th IAAF World Youth Track and Field Championships in Suditrol, Italy.

Unfortunatey, Caroline's best jump of 12.48m was not good enough to qualify for the final on Friday (top 12 in qualification move onto the final). Caroline will place 16th overall out of field of 35 of the best triple jumpers aged 17 and under in the world.

Next up for Caroline is the Canadian Junior Championships, being held from July 17th to 19th in Charlottetown, PEI. Caroline will compete in both the triple jump and long jump.
