  • Discus Grip

    Antonio James - - The World

    Post

    Ive used both types of grip, and I prefer the tips grip! Contrary to what some say, the hook grip isnt so bad. For chronic early releasers, I think those people are more consistent with the hook grip. It helps bring the discus around toward the middle of the sector, in the finish. Sometimes, I throw with a hook grip during practice (when its cold out) to prevent the blister on my right fingertip from tearing open upon release of the discus. My discs flight very well whether im using the hook gri…

  • With 2 events Indoors and 3 events Outdoors, the biggest transition I have is from discus to shot put. Losing a foot of ring can be a bit overwhelming out the back of the ring, and your ring awareness can go out the window. In comparison to discus, shot put is much faster, tighter, and a bit more uptempo. I personally think that shot put can help discus A TON! But it doesn't quite work so much the other way around. On the other hand, I might be experiencing the ups and downs of training. Its ver…

    Hey Kiddo, Ive never had a herniated disk before, but I have battled many many injuries thus far. My best advice... Keep Battling! Like you, I've been recovering from multiple injuries this season and sometimes you just have to roll with the blows, AND make sure not to skip out on rehabilitation. This season alone I've had 2 MRIs, and the doctors told me I tore my shoulder labrum in 3 places, along with a slight meniscus tear in my left knee, and torn cartilage on the back of the knee cap. Might…

    I'm a HUGE fan of Kurt Roberts and I hope he does really well this championship season. The guy brings a ton of energy and is crazy about throwing. Ive never seen a guy so optimistic in my life. Again, I hope Whiting does well too. That silver from last year may have been a bit bittersweet for him. He also did have a newborn (who's freakin adorable) last year if I'm right. Could have maybe taken away from training that year. Understandable... I thought Stephen Mozia was competing as well, yet he…

    During one competition, I witnessed the directors of the competition pour water into the Hammer Ring. Is this beneficial?

    Which ring do you feel most comfortable competing in, and why?

  • The Indoor Weight Throw at the International Level would be awesome. Of course, my answer is biased because I like throwing the weight just as much as I do the hammer, but I like to see other countries like Europe adopt the weight throw. Warms my Heart.

  • Throwing Shoes

    The Nike Zoom Rotational 5s have been the best shoes for me. I used to throw in the SD3s when I was too fast for my own good, but now I've learned to hold positions. The new rotationals help the rhythm and flow of the throw build a bit better. I LOVE the new all black 5s and I don't mind the pinkish red color either. pDSP1-16737675p275w.jpg

    I hope to be returning to Eugene this outdoor season. The facility is appealing and superior to most others, but I'd love the change of scenery AND atmosphere. Oregon offers plenty of love for both track and field athletes, but the experience is shallowed when you're exposed to just one facility.

  • I've seen a few throwers bomb stands over 18m. Joe Kovacs was throwing 58-61ft stands in warm-ups down in California around May of last year. Not quite 19m, but still very impressive.
