Iowa State’s David Carr takes 2nd to Mizzou’s O’Toole

David Carr of Iowa State finished runner-up in the men’s discus competition at the Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships, falling narrowly to Missouri’s John O’Toole.

Carr, a junior from Iowa, put forward a valiant effort, unleashing a throw of 168 feet, 6 inches. The mark was a personal best, eclipsing his previous top distance of 166 feet, 4 inches, which he set earlier this season at the Florida Relays.

Despite Carr’s stellar performance, O’Toole managed to edge him out. The senior from Missouri posted a mark of 169 feet, 1 inch. O’Toole’s discus throw was a season-best for him, and it was enough to clinch his first Big 12 title in the event.

Carr’s second-place finish was still an impressive feat, as the Iowa State athlete had to compete against formidable competition. He was up against a strong field of throwers, including Kansas’ Michael Corazza, who finished third with a throw of 163 feet, 1 inch, and Texas Tech’s David White, who placed fourth with a distance of 161 feet, 9 inches.

With his runner-up finish, Carr earned a berth in the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, which will be held in Eugene, Oregon, later this month.

At the Big 12 Championship, David Carr, a junior from Iowa State, executed a herculean effort, propelling the discus 168 feet, 6 inches, a personal best. Nevertheless, the toss was not enough to outshine Missouri’s John O’Toole, who hurled the discus 169 feet, 1 inch, to claim the Big 12 title. While Carr’s mark was enough to secure him a spot in the upcoming NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, he was forced to settle for second, as O’Toole’s season-best throw proved just slightly superior. Kansas’ Michael Corazza and Texas Tech’s David White rounded out the top four with throws of 163 feet, 1 inch, and 161 feet, 9 inches, respectively.
