    Javelin thrower Tori Peeters is confident Commonwealth Games qualification is well within her grasp

    Javelin thrower Tori Peeters is confident Commonwealth Games qualification is well within her grasp


    Peeters took out the women's Capital Classic event with a resident record-setting throw of 60-point-5 metres.

    She needs a throw of 61-point-5 metres to make the A-standard qualifying distance, having already met the B-standard of 59 metres.

    Peeters reckons she's yet to peak.
