    They need some gliders at these meets

  • @Odysseus I just grabbed the equation from the website haha. I don't know what half of it means.... I'm only still in high school Was just trying to help Sam out @Sam Healy ummm, doubt it. When throwing into a net I don't worry about the distance just the technical aspects of the throw. Good technique and the distance will happen. Also if I was curious about how far I am throwing, I can brave the conditions outside and walk to the circle in my backyard.

  • @Sam Healy Couldn't upload straight onto throwholics.... "https://www.dropbox.com/s/urerc6uqqw5dmtz/Calculating Distance.xlsx" link is to my dropbox containing spreadsheet I set up using formula just download it and you should be good to go! Let me know if you have any issues FORMULA USED - Same as website you linked a = angle h = height s = speed a = a * 0.017453293; d = ((s * s * sin(a) * cos(a)) + (s *cos(a) * sqrt((s *s * sin(a) * sin(a)) + 2 * 9.81 * h))) / 9.81;

  • Cheers @Norm Zylstra !

  • Interesting description to the video... "All NZL throwers and fans were expecting this since over 2 years : the shot put match between Jacko GILL , the world junior double champion and record holder , and Tom WALSH , the rising star of the event , NZL record holder and recent World champs Bronze medallist in Soppot. The medias made it a major event of the week end and were there in force in front of quite a large crowd , quite unusual for a shot put competition. People were even betting on the r…

    @Norm Zylstra @Florian van Dijck Thanks Norm! I didn't have much luck finding what style those throwers used either... I just made the assumption that if they were European especially before 2000 then they would be doing the glide? Not 100% accurate but the glide seems to be a trend over there and considering the rotational was relatively new back in 1980 also.

    @Florian van Dijck @Robin Claes @ThrowerFanatic I just have a couple throwers left who I'm trying to find what technique they used. I'll post them later on today after training. Sorry for the delay for the response, have had athletics nationals recently and been busy trying to catch up on missed schoolwork!

  • Personal Sacrifices for Success

    Lachlan Page - - Bierzelt

    Post

    I believe as an athlete I don't make any sacrifices. I only make choices and decisions.

  • Others may have a different approach to this but i always find that practicing the movement without the implement always helps. Going through the full range of motion of the throw without the implement and trying to fully extend that arm and finish nice and tall. If the athlete is releasing the shot to early. Work on getting the hip in and under and delaying the 'push'. Another thing to be cautious of is making sure that the athlete is gaining the height from his legs and not so much his arm. Th…
