Away We Go!

Its finally here! I leave tomorrow for US Indoor Championships! Its being held in Albuquerque, NM at the convention center. After this past weekend's results, I'm really excited for the competition. Adding fuel to my fire, I just found out that I was voted USATF athlete of the week! You can find the full article here:
I will be defending my Indoor Title for the 4th time and I am really excited about the Great Competition from American's Best Women.

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.
