Personal best helps Cowley improve
Sun, 05 Aug 2012 5:27a.m.
Adding more than a metre to her best in the javelin has helped Kiwi heptathlete Sarah Cowley move up the leaderboard on the second day of the athletics competition at the London Olympics.
The Rotorua 28-year-old threw 41.90m with her first effort to add 1.24m to her previous best after a difficult first day.
She was rewarded with 704 points to move her into 29th after the morning session on the second day with just the 800m left in the seven-discipline event.
She started the day 30th.
Cowley, who also managed 6.00m in the long jump, now has 5036 points, with Britain's poster girl Jessica Ennis leading on 5971.
Cowley was ranked 34th in the world coming into the Olympics and has a personal best on 6135.
