Bronson Osborn, Esperanza High School shot put and discus thrower, has been chosen for the “Dyestat Best Athletic Performance of the Week of April 18,” during online polling with 48.49% of voters.
Bronson competed against 20 other high school track and field athletes. Temecula’s Great Oak High School boys relay team came in second place. One week after breaking the national record in the 4×1600 relay, they ran 16:52.95 in the relay to smash their record. They also won the 4×800 relay (7:37.61) and the Distance Medley Relay (10:01.71) to be ranked #1 in the United States in all three events.
In third place, Austin Tamagno from Brea Olinda High School in California and Katie Rainsberger from Air Academy High School in Colorado tied for third. Austin Tamagno ran a new personal best in the mile running 4:03.21 at the Mt. SAC Relays. Katie Rainsberger from Colorado beat a college and pro field in the 1,500 meters at the Oregon Relays and ran a time of 4:17.52 at Hayward Field, becoming #1 in the United States for the 1,500 meters.
Bronson is ranked #1 in the United States for discus and #2 in the United States for shot put. Last weekend, Bronson competed in the Mt. SAC Relays and threw 71-7.25 feet in shot put, and 204-4 feet in discus.
Bronson now throws 71-7.25 feet in the shot put, breaking the 1985 Orange County meet shot put record of 70 feet which he set at the Corona Relays on Saturday, February 27, 2016.
