So Happy!

Well I'm officially off of cloud 9 and putting my nose back on the grind. Its been a couple weeks since the Indoor Championship, and I'm able to finally absorb everything that happened. I'm extremely happy with my performance and had a lot of fun with the competition. Getting to be on ESPN was a real treat! If anyone missed it here's the link:

My outdoor season starts next Friday March 19th here in Myrtle Beach at the Shamrock Invitational at Doug Shaw Stadium. The "Amber Campbell Invitational Hammer" will begin at 11am. (Pretty cool huh?) If anyone is in the area I'd love to see you out there to enjoy a fun competition! This is going to be a great year, so here's to long throws!

Love 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.
