Record in the sights of WA javelin star Kim Mickle

AFTER missing major meets in Canberra and Adelaide with an Achilles problem, Commonwealth Games gold medallist Kim Mickle (pictured) says she can't wait for a shot at her own national javelin record in Saturday's Melbourne World Challenge.

The West Australian, who beat South Africa's Sunette Viljoen and fellow Aussie Kelsey-Lee Roberts to claim gold in Glasgow, returned to the track in Perth last month and threw a world championship qualifier of 63.87m.

As well as the medallists from Glasgow, the event will also feature 2012 London Olympics finalist Kathryn Mitchell and Chinese stars Li Zhang and Lingwei Li.

"My body is feeling much better now. As well as the few issues that I had with my Achilles, it looks like I was battling a bit of a virus that made my energy levels shocking," Mickle said.

The meet is part of the 15-leg global World Challenge series hosted by the International Association of Athletics Federations.
