Jonathan Jones of The University at Buffalo, State University of New York men’s track & field team continued his record-breaking ways, winning gold in the shot put and becoming the first national champion in UB’s Division I history Wednesday. Now a six-time All-American, Jones had a school-record heave of 20.78 meters on his second attempt to take top honors at the 2015 NCAA Outdoor Championships hosted by Oregon.
He had this to say
“Bringing a national championship back to Buffalo is a dream come true,” said throws coach Jim Garnham Sr. “Jon beat some awesome talent today – but it was a nail biter. There’s something special about him. It hasn’t quite hit me yet that we have a national champion. I’m on cloud nine.”
