Sultana Frizell

Sultana Frizell (born 24 October 1984) is a Canadian track and field athlete competing in the hammer throw. Frizell currently trains under the guidance of Anatoli Bondarchuk in Kamloops, British Columbia. [ [http://www.kamloopstrack.ca/visiting.shtml Kamloops Track And Field ] ] She competed at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

Frizell started her athletic career in figure skating before taking up track and field in high school. [ [http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/features/beijingbound/story.html?id=49092ed4-c0f7-4cbd-a81f-c6719908a0fd] ] While attending Perth District Collegiate Institute, she competed in the
shot put, discus, javelin, and hammer throw. She won gold medals in hammer and shot put and silver in discus at 2003 Canadian junior championships. She also took fourth in the hammer and sixth in shot put at 2003 Pan Am junior championships. Although she set a Canadian High School Record Holder in the shot put [ [http://www.canthrow.com/news/may01b2003.shtml] ] , she ultimately decided to focus on the hammer throw.

Frizell graduated high school in 2003 and immediately enrolled at the University of Georgia where she competed for three seasons. In her first season, Frizell showed tremendous improvement. She placed ninth at the NCAA Championships and third at the Canadian Track and Field Championships. She also improved her personal bests in the shot put and javelin. She finished the season with a best of 63.36 meters in the hammer throw. In 2005, Frizell improved her best to 66.42 meters. She improved her placing at both the NCAA Championships and Canadian Championships, finishing sixth and second respectively.

For the 2006 season, Frizell returned to her native Ontario to train. She continued to progress and won her first Canadian national title in 2007. She also qualified for the 2007 Pan American Games where she placed seventh. On November 1, 2007, Frizell relocated to Kamloops, British Columbia to train under the guidance of former world record holder Anatoli Bondarchuk. During the 2008 season, Frizell broke the Canadian senior women's hammer throw record four times and improved her personal best by over three meters. Her personal best throw of 70.94 meters was in July 2008 at the Canadian Track and Field Championships in Windsor, Ontario. [ [http://www.athletics.ca/main.asp?page_url=/display_news.asp?newsid=580] ] That mark qualified her for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, where she placed 33rd out of 50 competitors.
