Three Ultra Throw members traveled to Perth, Australia in October 2016 to compete at the 22nd World Masters Athletics Track and Field Championships.

Scot Henney won 5 of the 20 total medals for Canada at the Championships.  Gold for the weight throw and the weight pentathlon, silver for the hammer, and bronze for the shot put and the javelin (he placed 4th in the discus).  Not bad for taking up the sport at 89 years of age (two years ago)!

Frances Steinfeld had top 8 finishes in all the events she entered (she passed on the javelin).  Frances placed 6th in the shot put, 7th in the weight throw, hammer and the weight pentathlon, and 8th in the discus.

Dave McDonald placed 5th in the hammer, 6th in the javelin, 9th in the weight throw, 16th in the shot put and 17th in the discus.  He did not finish the weight pentathlon.  

"It was quite the experience for us all," said Dave McDonald.  "The structure and formality of the events will be remembered by me for a long time.  The biggest 'bring back' from the games will definitely be the interactions with all the competitors in every event and within the championships.  I have said it before: 'throwers are the best!' "
