OSU's Miller Ranked 12th In World In Hammer Throw

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma State's Nick Miller will enter the 2012 track and field season ranked 12th in the world in the 6kg under-20 hammer throw, according to the IAAF 2012 top list.

A native of Carlisle, United Kingdom, Miller recorded a throw of 73.76 meters in Livingston, Scotland, last June at the Hammerana meet to earn a spot among the world's best.

"This is a huge achievement for anyone to be ranked that high in the world rankings," said OSU throwing coach John Bauman. "This is a great way to start the upcoming season, both indoor and outdoor."

Miller is coming off an impressive freshman year that was highlighted by a Big 12 championship in the hammer throw. He became the first Cowboy athlete to win an outdoor conference title in the hammer throw since Wallace Thornberry in 1901. He also set an Oklahoma State school record when he launched a 7.26 kilogram hammer 67.56 meters/221-08 at the Hammerama meet in Scotland.
