Hi, their throwers!


Something that I have always wanted to do and now that we have a big enough platform would be to set up a Throwholics community showcase "TCS."

What is the Throwholics community showcase?

well to sum it up, what It would be is a montage of videos/images from the community, that could be videos of yourself training, competing in competitions, preparation, maybe even pictures of you winning a medal at a competition, It is just a way for the community to show off what they have been up to, and show off their accomplishments.

The video montage would be out every month or 2 weeks depending on the amount of clips/images I get, but even if I only get a few clips/pictures, the video will still be out.

This is just a small overview of what it is about

But something I would like to know is what you think, and if you would be happy to send in your clips or images. There would be a lot more thinking to do, but it is just something that I think would be good.

Hey there, has anyone of you read this article?

One month from today the IAAF will elect their next president. Two candidates are vying for the position: Lord Sebastian Coe and Sergey Bubka.

Martin Bingisser wrote:

Both Coe and Bubka have stellar resumés that will surely push the sport forward. But sometimes it is a bit difficult to see the differences between them. Both are currently vice presidents at the IAAF. Coe won two Olympic golds; Bubka won one, in addition to six world titles. Coe set 11 world records; Bubka 35. Coe leads the British Olympic Association; Bubka is at the helm of the Ukrainian Olympic Committee.
Even their proposals start to look the same. Bubka wants more street events, and so does Coe.Coe is zero tolerance on doping, and so is Bubka. Coe calls for a reform of the athletics calenderand, suprise surprise, so does Bubka. And I could go on.
But there is one area where there is a difference. I’ve never seen Coe pick up a hammer, but earlier this year Bubka not only did that, but stated on the record his support of our event while visiting Primoz Kozmus’ school in Slovenia. When asked about the problem of the hammer throw being excluded from the Diamond League, Bubka responded:

Maybe this feature is not that clear displayed and maybe some might know really know what to do with it.

We could also rename it to "private messages" if it makes things more clear to you all.
