Kara Winger set to throw at Weltklasse Zürich meet Thursday...

Despite the disappointment of not qualifying for the finals at the London world championships, Vancouver native Kara Winger (left/photo by Paul Merca) will compete in Thursday’s IAAF Diamond League women’s javelin final at the Weltklasse Zürich meet.

Winger will compete against a field that includes world champion Barbora Spotáková of the Czech Republic, and Olympic champ Sara Kolak of Croatia.


On the lighter side, here’s a link to an interview Kara did with theringer.com where she analyzes the Night King’s javelin throwing technique from the HBO “Game of Thrones” series.

Action at the Weltklasse Zürich gets underway on NBCSN and the NBC Sports Gold Pass ($) beginning at 11 am Thursday.  The women’s javelin starts at 10:25 am Seattle time, before the television window begins.
