Mamona Wins Three Events at Portuguese Junior Championships

July 11, 2007

Clemson women’s track & field athlete Patricia Mamona won three events at the Portuguese Junior Championships over the weekend. The freshman from Lisbon claimed titles in the 100m hurdles, long jump, and triple jump. She will next compete at the European Junior Championships from July 19-22 in Hengelo, Holland.

Mamona improved by sixth-tenths of a second in the 100m hurdle final to post a time of 14.16 and run away with the event title. Her effort of 18’8.5″ in the long jump also was good enough to claim first-place honors. Mamona’s specialty event, the triple jump, was also a landslide victory. She had an impressive mark of 43’5.25″, just shy of her personal best in the event.

This past season, Mamona earned All-ACC honors at both the league’s indoor and outdoor meets. She was runner-up in the triple jump at the ACC Outdoor Championships in April, then placed third at the NCAA East Region Championships in Gainesville, FL in May. She competed in the triple jump at the NCAA Championships in Sacramento, CA and advanced to the finals of the event.
