Track Beauty of the Week: Berta Castells
May 12, 2012Posted by on
Berta Castells is this week’s track beauty!
Castells owns the Spanish national record in the hammer throw. She threw 69.53m at the 2011 Spanish Championships in Malaga. The 28-year old is an experienced international campaigner. She has represented Spain from regional, continental and in all the major championships.
Her best ever finish in the majors was 18th at the Daegu World Championships last year, where she threw 67.74m. She qualified for the finals at the 2010 European Championships, in front of her home crowd in Barcelona.
Castells had a fruitful career as youth and junior athlete. She struck World Youth silver and European Junior bronze in 2001. Two years later, the talented youngster again won third at the European Juniors in Tampere, Finland. That same year, the then 19-year old Castells made her major championship debut, finishing in 37th place at the 2003 World Championships in Paris.
