A.G. Kruger’s Olympic Medal Bid Falls Short
Date posted - August 3, 2012
Only one of Kruger’s three hammer tosses were counted and his throw of 72.13 meters was good for 25th place. The top 12 tosses advanced to the finals round.
Kruger’s teammate Kibwe Johnson did advance with a throw of 77.17 meters, good for a fifth place finish.
Earlier this year in a meet in Ashland, Kruger threw 79.20 meters. At that time it was the longest throw in the U.S. and the seventh longest in the world this year.
It’s the third Olympic Games for Kruger. He first competed in the 2004 Olympiad in Athens Greece and qualified for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing China. The 1997 Sheldon graduate and 2001 graduate of Morningside College is currently the strength and conditioning coach for the Ashland University Football Team in Ashland Ohio.
