More updates of Washington state affiliated athletes in the Olympic Trials...

Thanks to sharp eyed reader Martin Bingisser (the former University of Washington hammer thrower), I missed several other Washington-affiliated athletes qualified for the US Olympic Team Trials-Track & Field:

Men's Long Jump--Elvie Williams (Idaho/Spanaway Lake HS/Spokane CC) 26-0 3/4 (7.94m)

Men's Triple Jump--Kyle Jenkins (Thomas Jefferson HS/Indiana Univ.) 53-0 3/4 (16.17m)

Men's Javelin--Shae Murray (ex Spokane CC) 245-5 (74.80m)

Women's Javelin--Kara Patterson (Skyview/Vancouver & Purdue Univ.) 202-0 (61.56m)

Women's Hammer--Vanessa Wilhelm (Azusa Pacific/Crescent HS in Joyce, near Port Angeles) 213-11 (65.21m)

Men's Shot Put--Jesse Roberge (Azusa Pacific/Yelm HS) 64-6 (19.66m)

ON THE BUBBLE--Drew Ulrick (WSU)--men's discus 198-11 (60.62m)

ANOTHER UPDATE: Thanks to Wyoming throws coach Paul Barrett, he spotted three more Washington affiliated athletes missing: Kate Burton in the hammer (Wyoming/Clark CC/Evergreen HS) 209-8/63.92; Ryan Weidman (Spokane Falls CC coach) in the javelin 237-2/72.29m; and, Jake Shanklin in the men's hammer (Wyoming/Spokane CC/Ellensburg HS) at 212-3/64.70.m.

Roberge and Wilhelm are training partners of Bingisser under Anatoly Bondarchuk, the 1972 Olympic gold medalist in the hammer throw, who is coaching them in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Here's a YouTube clip of Wilhelm and others in the Kamloops training group:
