Make sure you know your glide shot put history. When Parry O'Brien turned his back to the toe board in the '56 Olympics it changed everything. It's important to find out why we do things and how we can continue to refine them.
p.s. That is Bruce Jenner doing the interview. Yes, before the Kardashians and before all that surgery messed up his face.
I have seen incredible growth in interest for throwing Shot Put and Discus as the Throws Coach at Madison Memorial High School. My first year coaching in 2002, I had 17 throwers boys and girls combined. That number ballooned to 47 throwers at one point. I now average about 35 throwers a year. Those numbers have necessitated more space to practice... we added 3 circles in 2007 with the help of Mark Nelson and Lycon Inc. Now, after a couple years of planning, Mark again has helped us with more space by adding 14 new circles for throwing and technique.
Thank you to all of the Madison Memorial Thowers, whose passion for Track and Field has helped make more circles necessary. But the biggest thank you goes to Mark Nelson and his guys, whose hard work and generosity made this happen. I am one happy throws Coach!
Congrats Madison Throws Club ... you will soon be benefiting from this upgrade as well!
