Colin came in 7th in the USA at the NCAA Nationals on June-2008 in Des Moines  throwing the Hammer.

He had to throw a personal best throw of 219-7 to move from his standing going into the meet which was 11th to get to 7th.

This gives him All American status.

News from the house of David

Colin Veldman, oldest son of David Veldman has received a full scholarship at Utah State University.

According to David:

Colin did receive a full tuition scholarship to Utah State which is in Logan, Utah. It is a great little town about an hour and a half north of Salt Lake City. He is a standout in throwing. Discuss is his specialty and he also throws shot put. Colin is a big kid. He is 6'-5", +/-260 lbs. and all muscle. It has been a long time since he and I have wrestled. I expect he'll have a record setting senior year before he heads out to College. I am, of course, thrilled and proud, as this opportunity has truly given him a focus not just on athletics but also on maintaining the grades needed to be NCAA eligible. The folks in Utah promise to take good care of him in every respect.
