Former Husky Mart Israel finishes second in Chula Vista discus challenge...

Former University of Washington discus thrower Mart Israel finished second to Estonian countryman and training partner Gerd Kanter at the Chula Vista Discus Challenge Tuesday at the US Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California.

Israel, who was enrolled at Washington during the 2006-07 academic year, but never competed for the Huskies due to the transferring of credits from the school he attended in Estonia to the UW, threw a 2009 season best of 216-8 (66.05m) to finish behind the reigning world and Olympic champion's winning toss of 229-2 (69.86m).

Former Washington State Cougar Ian Waltz, a two-time US Olympian, finished seventh in his opening meet of the 2009 season, throwing 206-0 (62.79m).
