Jones throws way to success
He won the javelin with a throw of 191-3 and was also No. 1 in the shot put at 51-4.5. In addition, he was also a runner-up in the discus throw at 174-3.5.
A week earlier, at the huge Dr Pepper Invitational hosted by Baylor University, Jones won the javelin at 204-3 and the discus at 170-10.
Considering the weather conditions at the Mize meet, he did extra well in the three throwing events. While the skies were clear, the temperatures dipped into the low 40s and became even lower with intermittent wind gusts that reached as high as 30 miles an hour.
