SAN JOSE, Costa Rica — Mayyi Mahama took the silver medal in the women’s hammer throw at the Under-20 Pan American U20 Games at San Jose, Costa Rica, on Sunday with a throw of 202 feet, 1 inch. Mahama graduated from Pullman High in 2018 and is a sophomore-to-be at the University of Pennsylvania.

“This was her first international competition and I don’t think it’ll be her last,” Pullman coach Mike Hinz said. “Who knows, one of these days, she may be in the running for the Olympic games.”
