EUGENE, Ore. -- Two local athletes will be joining the U.S. javelin team in London after Sunday's finals won by Brittany Berman with a personal best of 201 feet 9 inches, meeting the Olympic A standard of 200 feet 1 inch.

She accomplished both on her final throw.

Kara Patterson, a graduate of Vancouver's Skyview High School, came in second in the women's javelin throw finals at the U.S. Track and Field Trials Sunday in Eugene.
