Gabriel Oladipo 'The Closer' Breaks His Second AAU Junior Olympic Games Record Of The Week



This is not a broken record or a skipping CD. Fort Bend Hightower graduate GABE OLADIPO did it again, he broke another AAU Junior Olympic Games record. On Wednesday, Oladipo took down the shot put record with his 73-8.75. Today, his premiere event came around and he was determined to have the same results from the shot put. 

Oladipo just returned from Trujilo, Peru where he competed at the Pan American Championships. It's no secret that he didn't have the results he wanted in Peru. With that disappointment, he seems to be taking it out on the AAU Junior Olympic competition. 

The discus competition was thought to belong to Oladipo, but that wasn't enough for him. "Yesterday was huge for me, but I had to clear my mind and get ready for today." He added the win and the record to his list of accomplishments. He tossed 210-4 to eclipse the previous record of 202-7. The previous record stood for over 20 years and Oladipo's new record could very well last for a long time as well.

In the final week of his prep career, you've got to tip your hat to what Gabe Oladipo was able to do this season as he came back from an ACL injury. It's been visible that he wore a knee brace all season. The way he has performed, it sometimes seemed like a prop. New horizons lie ahead for Oladipo as he prepares to ship off to compete at Texas A&M next year. "This year I wanted to get back everything I lost before and reach new heights." I'd say he has done a very good job.
