Training Update!

These last two weeks have been some of the best and most productive training days I've ever had. I've seen my practice throws increasing in distance to equal my competition lifetime bests. That's exciting for me because I've always thrown farther in meets than I have in practice. I'm looking for my upcoming meets to be the most successful so far. My next competitions will be the Reebok Grand Prix May 31st in NYC followed by the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, OR. Until next time, Peace and Blessings!!!!

Throws Information

Throwing formats
In Olympic throwing events -- men's and women's shot put, discus, hammer and javelin -- the competition begins with a qualifying round in which the entire field is divided into two or more groups. In this round, competitors take turns attempting to reach a pre-set distance that automatically advances them to the final. If fewer than 12 athletes meet the distance required from direct qualification, the 12 competitors with the best throws, plus any athletes tying for 12th, advance to the final. In the final round, competitors take turns until each has attempted three throws. At this point, the top eight-ranked competitors (plus ties) receive three more throws. The best throw of the six is counted and the athlete with the longest throw is declared the winner. In case of a tie, the second-best throw is consulted.
