Wade Hampton alumnus competing in Olympic Trials

The Citadel graduate senior Capers Williamson has qualified for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Eugene, Ore., and will begin competition in the opening round of the javelin throw at 3:45 p.m. EST on Saturday at the historic Hawyard Field.
"This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments and we are so excited for him to be able to have this experience," said The Citadel head track and field coach Jody Huddleston. "Eugene is a very special place in the world of track and field, not only getting to experience that but then also to get to throw in the Olympic Trials on top of it is a very special way to end your Citadel track and field career.  The coaches, his teammates and The Citadel want to wish him all the best."

Williamson did not compete in track and field at Wade Hampton.
