TEARS OF JOY FROM THE BRILLIANT BARBER
Australia’s Kelsey-Lee Barber cried for joy after winning bronze in the women’s javelin final on Friday night.
This made up for the absence of the final at Rio 2016. She made up for two years of pain and mental struggle since winning the 2019 world championships – two years in which she fell in the standings and appeared in the shadow. at its best shine.
She was about to miss the final in the prelims after two anxious throws, before pulling in a 62.59-meter effort which was her best of the season. And when the pressure rises a notch in the final, she keeps the best for last once again by throwing a magnificent 64.56m to clinch bronze.
Barber broke down in tears and did it again when she spoke to Channel 7 afterwards.
“I love this sport,” she said. “I love my event. I can’t tell you how much fun I had there tonight. Like, it’s this weird focused determination that I thrive on and love it. I like to be here.
“I think I’ve said a few times that this year has challenged me in so many ways. I’m not going to lie to you, there were times this year when (coach and husband) Mike and I were sitting and crying, I didn’t know if I was going to make it, let alone think sometimes I was going to win a medal. I think the thing is, I – like I said, I love it. I didn’t want to give up and I didn’t want to stop fighting for it. So I went on and worked hard for it and we found a way.
An emotional barber added: “These are tears of joy. It really is. I was here five years ago when I finished in Rio and said I was going to be in the final and I was going to fight for a medal. And my God, I’m so proud of what I accomplished tonight.
“I just want to say thank you to everyone at the house. You’ve been with me for this year, two years. You’ve been through thick and thin and I love you so much. Thank you for all of your support. “

EARLY DEPARTURE FOR THE STARS OF THE MARATHON AUSSIE
The women’s Olympic marathon kicks off on Saturday at 6 a.m. local time (7 a.m. AEST), an hour earlier than expected due to the heat and humidity forecast for endurance in Sapporo.
The change is “to allow slightly cooler weather for the runners,” said a statement from the organizers.
At the new start time, it should be 25 degrees Celsius, rising to 28 degrees at 8:00 a.m., then to 30 degrees an hour later, with 90% humidity.
Sunday’s men’s marathon remains at its scheduled start time of 7:00 a.m. (local). Organizers have moved the marathons to the capital to avoid Tokyo’s summer heat.
Australians Lisa Weightman, Sinead Diver and Ellie Pashley will compete – Weightman in her fourth Olympics, while Diver is the favorite of the Australian contingent.
