Mickey gets bye to finals in Dubai

By Medicine Hat News on November 9, 2019.

Sarah Mickey is one good throw away from spot on the World Para Athletics Championship podium.

The 21-year-old from Redcliff was initially slated to make her debut in Dubai for Sunday’s para discus qualifying round, but announced via social media Friday that she earned a bye into next week’s final.

“Stoked to announce that I’ve auto qualified for the finals,” said Mickey, adding in response to a comment on her post that “there’s 14 girls in total and because I’m ranked in the top 6 we automatically qualified for finals.”

Mickey will compete for gold at the World Para Athletics Championships on Friday at 7 a.m. The event will be streamed live at cbc.ca.
