Krzyszkowski Takes Third at Canadian Championships

July 8, 2016


EDMONTON – Marquette University senior John Krzyszkowski competed at the 2016 Canadian Championships on Friday and took third place in the javelin with a personal-best mark at Foote Field in Edmonton, Alberta.

Krzyszkowski led off the competition with a strong throw of 68.08 meters, which was good for third after the first of six attempts. His second throw was a little farther at 68.92 meters, vaulting him to second place overall, but falling just shy of his personal-best of 69.39 meters set in a win at the Illinois Twilight back on April 23.

On his third attempt, the Mississauga, Ontario native would surpass his previous mark and set a new career standard with a toss of 70.04 meters (229 feet, 9 inches). At the time, he remained in second place, but after a pair of faults and a final toss of 64.46 meters, Krzyszkowski would finish third overall – not far behind Evan Karakolis (71.77 meters) and Kyle Nielsen (71.54 meters), who took first and second place, respectively.

It was another strong year for Krzyszkowski, who won his third straight BIG EAST Outdoor crown in the javelin and finished 15th at the NCAA West Region Preliminaries that saw him narrowly miss a top-12 spot and a trip to the NCAA Championships.

Krzyszkowski's season isn't done yet as he will compete with Team Canada next weekend at the NACAC Under 23 Championships in El Salvador.

He will return for Marquette in 2016-17 for his final year of eligibility.
