Jeremy Campbell beats his world record at Endeavor Games
EDMOND, Okla. — University of Central Oklahoma resident athlete and two-time Paralympic gold medalist Jeremy Campbell set a new world record in the men’s discus F44/42 on June 10 at the UCO Endeavor Games for Athletes with Physical Disabilities in Edmond, Okla.
On Sunday, Campbell broke the world record twice – a record that he set less than a month ago at the BT Paralympic World Cup in Manchester, England – first with a throw of 62.3m, and second with a throw of 63.45m.
“Once I saw that the distance of my first throw was longer than I thought, I knew it was going to be a good day,” Campbell, a native of Perryton, Texas, said.
“Breaking the record not only validates how hard I’ve been working, but also motivates me to keep pushing. My throw isn’t perfect – I can go farther.”
