Coach V Pro Tip: Improvement

Coach V Pro Tip: Here are some great tips from coach Vésteinn Hafsteinsson on the improvement of Bosnian Shot Putter Mesud Pezer over 4 years.
1. 2013 - 18.86m, 2014 - 19.37m, 2015 - 19.99m, 2016 - 20.58m, 2017 - 21.40m, 2018 - ???
2. Sometimes films or pictures say more than 100 words, enjoy the comparison of a film from Januray 2014 and January 2018
3. Mesud has gradually learned to sweep his right leg much earlier from the back and also from low to high
4. That has helped him to stay more upright in the sprint so he gets the separation in the middle
5. That results in a much faster reaction from the wrap and onward to the moment of fast release


"How to Become an Olympic Champion" is a video series by coach Vésteinn Hafsteinsson on example of Discus Throw legend Gerd Kanter. The first video series puts focus on Olympic Lifting for Throwers. Click here for more info.
