Carol Frost sizzles in Lyon warmup: W70 WR in javelin, 2 ARs

Carol “Hot Thrower” Frost

Local TV reports that Carol Frost, 70, of Ashland, Nebraska, set two American records and one world record at the Iowa Senior Games June 13 in West Des Moines, Iowa. “In the javelin, Frost again crushed her American competition, breaking the 500g record by almost 40 feet with a throw of 91 feet 5 5/8 inches (27.88 meters). This throw also beat the world record set in 2014 by nearly 6 feet. In the shot put, Frost broke the American record by more than 5 feet, throwing 34 feet 9 inches (10.59 meters). Competing in the discus competition, Frost more than doubled any other throw on the day, with a new American record of 100 feet 3 3/4 inches (30.58 meters). This bested the previous record by nearly 18 feet.”

The story continued:

Frost, a graduate of the University of Nebraska, has been a world-class athlete her entire career. She toured Russia, West Germany and Poland with the 1965 USA track and field team as a top-rated discus and shot put competitor.

She represented the United States in international competition in 1966 as the national champion in the discus and later earned the gold medal for the event during the 1967 Pan American Games. Additionally, Frost represented the United States during the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.

Frost will travel to the World Masters Athletics Outdoor Championships in Lyon, France, in August to compete among other world-class athletes.

    Carol totally reminds me of a young Jane Frederick, the pentathlete I so very much admired.

    Looking forward to watch her in Lyon. Though we really don’t know the final schedule, though we should all be at Parilly.
