BARCELONA, Spain -- Iowa State freshman Christina Hillman (Dover, Del.) finished fourth in the finals of the women's shot put at the IAAF World Junior Track and Field Championships at Montjuic Olympic Stadium Tuesday.

"It was an amazing day," Iowa State throws coach Grant Wall said. "Christina narrowly missed a medal and finished fourth in the world. She stepped up on the biggest stage."

Hillman marked 16.27/53-4½ in round three and entered the final three throws in third place. In round five, China's Ka Bain passed Hillman with a mark of 16.48/54-1 to take over the bronze-medal position. Hillman responded in round six with a throw of 16.12/52-10¾, but it was not enough to move on to the medal stand.

Hillman's season is not yet over. She will compete in a meet this month in Maryland.
