JAMAICA'S Jason Morgan set a new National Record in the discus throw when he threw 65.61m at the Leon Johnson Invitational at Walter P Ledet Track Complex on the campus of Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana earlier today.

The former Calabar High and Louisiana Tech athlete beat his own record 64.11m set at a meet also in Louisiana last year and has achieved the A qualifying standard for the is summer's London Olympics.

In an interview with the Jamaica Observer, Morgan said he felt he could have thrown farther but was 'working on technique' as he warmed up for a meet at Louisianan Tech tomorrow afternoon where he said he hoped to go over 68.00m.
