NEW ZEALAND (4/8/14) - The New Zealand Olympic Committee has named the first athletes to represent New Zealand at this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and they have chosen Princeton's own Julia Ratcliffe.

Ratcliffe was selected after her fourth-place finish at the 2012 World Junior Championships and holds the national record in the women's hammer throw.

Ratcliffe has been a force since arriving on campus last year. She was named second-team All-America last spring when she placed 11th in the NCAA Championships. The 2013 Heps champion in the event she holds the school and Ivy League record in the hammer throw at 68.80 (225-8.75).

She currently is the NCAA leader in the event with a throw of 68.71 (225-05), which she threw last weekend at the Sam Howell Invitational, a meet record.

The Commonwealth Games take place 23 July - 3 August 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Commonwealth Games is an international, multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. First held in 1930, the games are described as the third largest multi-sport event in the world after the Olympic Games and the Asisan Games.
