CoachV ProTip: Here are some great tips from coach Vésteinn Hafsteinsson on Marcus Thomsen  indoor PB 19.57m.

This is a good overall effort by Marcus in his first indoor meet of the year and a huge indoor PB.
There are still some things to improve on:

Daniel Ståhl threw a world leading throw 71.29m at the Folksam GP Sollentuna, Sweden. In this throw he broke the long standing Swedish National Record held by legendary Ricky Bruch, also marks as the 9th all-time result in discus history.

Global Throwing has an endless database of throwing related material and we decided to share some of that material with our friends in the throwing community. This is Vésteinn Hafsteinsson lecture in Orisaare, Estonia in the fall of season 2012. He talks about Snatch and how the use of Snatch is planned during the whole year in his group.

Daniel Ståhl threw a world leading throw 68.72m at the Swedish Championships at the end of the 2016 season in Stockholm, Sweden. In this throw he broke the championships record, stadium record, area record, club record and of course personal record.

This is a video course we have been working on for some time now. Our goal is to publish this material in the beginning of 2017. First topic is about Strength Training (Olympic Weight Lifting) and we have over 35 video clips and more than 3,5 hours of material.

There are four discus throwers through history that have influenced me the most both as a young discus thrower in the past and later on when I got into coaching. I called them “Legends” and have tremendous respect for all of them.
