Biomechanical studies in Växjö

For the 3rd year in a row the Swedish Athletic Association with support from the Swedish Olympic Committee does biomechanical studies on throwers in the Throwing Center in Växjö.

Daniel, Simon, Jakob and Fanny did it yesterday and today. For me as a coach it is a tremendous help in developing their technique to the highest level. Through the years we have gotten Anders Borgström to help us to read through the results and use it to improve the throwers performances.

The filming is done and scientific approach is done by Tobias Hein from Germany.

All the athletes did really well today and I am excited to get the results soon to find out if we are on the right way in relation to height, angle and speed of release among other factors that are measured in these tests.



"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.
