    Quote from Ali Mohammadian: “Quote from Wu Tao: “Quote from Bill Dekkinga: “Quote from Loneranger: “Tanks!

    Quote from throwzfan: “... I can see where he would want/need to take some real time away from shot. Ryan could have won NCAA's in discus but he was just missing it and there are a whole lot of reasons that could be the case but I personally feel that if he focused on discus for a year and let things heal up for shot he could well take a run at 66M next summer for the Olympics... Ryan will only be 23 years old in December so he is just on the verge of needing to decide what he wants to do. ” See…

  • Quote from Cyrus Corman-Gill via Facebook: “The things I see are that you are landing open and then throwing with your upper body and chasing the shot, thus not fully utilizing your legs or hips.” Quote from Jimmy Arango via Facebook: “Open.. As in when I'm landing in power position I'm turned already?” Quote from Cyrus Corman-Gill via Facebook: “Yeah.” Quote from Jimmy Arango via Facebook: “I've been trying to work on that...
