Talbert Earns All-America Honors in Eugene
Talbert closed out a remarkable career as a Golden Eagle by posting a mark of 54.09 meters in the discus event to place third out of 22 competitors. Talbert earned her second-career All-America honor, as the Newton, Kan., native finished sixth in the discus throw at the 2008 NCAA Outdoor Championships. Talbert becomes the 13th Golden Eagle to earn multiple All-America honors and the 48th selection overall for the ORU track and field program.
Marvin Bonde (Bulawayo, Zimbabwe) also competed on Wednesday, racing to a time of 10.37 to finish 13th in the 100-meter dash. Bonde will have another shot at earning All-America status on Thursday in the preliminary 200-meter dash.
