Maria-Pia Rahme(CSJ) just set a new record for Youth Girls(under 18) in javelin throw on 8 July at Beyrouth Stadium for the Ansar meet. It's not the first apparition for Pia at this event, but this year she surprised everyone!
The ex Lebanese record haven't been broken since 1974! And 36 years after, the 27.60 is today 28.59 Meters for Maria-Pia Rahme in 2010. The competition was rude, Pia and Karine Naji(Ansar) were fighting for the record. Karine have thrown 28.15m on the 4th attempt, and then Pia scored 28.59 on her 5th attempt, after Karine Naji's record. Finally both were great but the Lebanese record went to the one who thrown furthest, Maria-Pia Rahme.
We're going to watch them both, improving their performances at the Lebanese Individual Championship next week, where the record will be probably broken again! Best of luck!
