Jarrett Chong hit the Youth Olympic standard set by Athletics Canada for U18 Javelin. Jarrett has been chasing the standard since the beginning of the season and has come close on at least one other occasion. He threw the magic mark at the 2018 Pacific Invitational Track Meet in Langley on June 17.
The Youth Olympics are being held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in October. Athletics Canada has yet to name the team or published more details regarding team selection other than publishing the standard.
