so this was originally reported by her Coach Joey Ming Lao of UST. While later verified by Asian Athletics Statistician Heinrich Hubbeling. Also, PATAFA Chief Field Judge Jeanette Obiena verified that this was indeed the correct weight.
While this improved on Aira’s previous mark of 40.70m set at the UAAP 17th February 2016.
Also, Aira was a member of the ASEAN School Games Team 2014. While she originally hails from Silay City, Negros Occidental. Also originally a Discus Thrower she has transitioned well into the Hammer Throw.
While Teodosio’s new improvement is the #2 all-time performance. Also after former national athlete Loralie Sermona National Record of 50.55m which was set in Pune, India in 2013.
