Langley Mustang set to throw at Pan Am Games in Toronto

Langley Mustangs track and field team member Melissa Fraser has qualified to compete for Canada in women’s javelin at the Pan Am Games in Toronto.

Fraser, a four time Big East Conference champion in Javelin with DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, is scheduled to compete on July 21.

Athletics Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee recently nominated 43 women and 46 men to compete in the Games and Fraser, a graduate of DePaul University, was on the list.

Fraser is coached by Langley Mustangs Coach Tom Nielsen who said, “It was clear to me since her arrival to our program Melissa was capable of some very big throws. Her consistent improvements ultimately lead to a new personal best and her Pan Am qualifying mark.”
