Riech places third in javelin trials

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Hot Springs native Todd Riech finished third in the javelin at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, but that doesn't mean he automat ically gets to go to Sydney in September.

Because none of the top three throwers met the Olympic standard of 269 feet in Thursday's competition, Riech will need to reach that mark in competition between now and Sept. 11 in order to get a spot on the Olympic team.

Breaux Greer of the New York Athletic Club won the event with a throw of 266 feet and goes to the Olympics unless someone else meets the qualifying standard. American record holder Tom Pukstys was second at 260-4 while Riech, who competes for Nike, was next at 252-5.

Riech set a trials record of 268-7 in qualifying for the 1996 Atlanta Games. He'll need to add five inches to that mark to make the trip to Sydney.

Riech's best throw in Atlanta was 255-11 and he failed to advance to the javelin finals.
