CARBONDALE (WSIL) -- Saturday evening two more local athletes compete in the Tokyo Olympics.

However, it'll actually be Sunday mroning in Tokyo.

Both SIU alums Deanna Price and Gwen Berry compete in the Hammer Throw.

When we recently spoke to Price, she mentioned how she's trained and prepared for this moment.

"Now I'm competing at a world level, it's all about mental, all about physical," Price said. "How much do you want it, how much do you want to work for it. It's the people you surround yourself with. It makes the biggest difference and that is why I am so successful because I have all this love, all this energy I just have for my surrounding little people that makes the biggest deal. Yeah."
