Classic features French flavor

Antoinette Nana Djinou and the French national multi-sport team continued a relatively new, but already strong tradition of Olympians training and competing at the Westmont track. And Nana Djinou did more than just compete and train on Saturday. She won the javelin and set the stadium record for the shot put in another first-place finish at the Westmont Classic Track Meet. The reigning European champion — who finished sixth in the heptathlon at the 2012 London Olympics — is part of a large French contingent that includes Yasmina Omrani and Marisa Dianicito, who train and compete at Westmont. They are all scheduled to return to the Montecito campus for next weekend’s Sam Adams Combined Events Invitational. more
