National Record holder in the Shot Put, Mustafa Fall, set a new national record at the Kansas Relays, USA.
Fall has become the first Fijian to throw the 7.26kg shot put with a distance of 17 metres.
In just under a year after joining Coffeyville University in the Fall semester of 2018, Mustafa quickly made a name for himself when he broke and set the Fiji national indoor record twice after finally pushing it out to an impressive 16.68 metres at the 2019 NJCAA Region VI Indoor Championships.
Fall pushed his outdoor national record to 16.21 metres and continually threatened the 17 metres barrier until his final breakthrough at the Kansas relays last weekend.
Fall is definitely one of Fiji’s most talented throwers as he has stamped his mark in the top 10 all-time throwers in Fiji where he sits as No. 1 in the shot put and No. 2 in the discus behind Mesulame Rakuro.
