You are here

Training camp is fun

Here are some pictures and film clips of all kinds of throwers from our group and others here at the center. GT Group of Leif, Tim, Daniel, Heidi and Simon are here of course.

Then the GBR throwers are here with Shaun and Andy Neal along with Dave Parker and Peter Stanley that are in charge of GBR throwing.

When you look around the throwing field you see Thorkildsen throwing the javelin, Majewski and Kovacs throwing the shot or Erik Cadée and Malachowski slamming the discus. Ziolkowski is on the other side throwing the hammer. Tia Brooks throwing shot, all the Brazilians are around throwing in every corner and Lis Podominick throws discus.

The legendary Mac Wilkins and Art Venegas coaching the American throwers etc. And of course the bird looking over everything on top of the throwing cage.

The sun is shining, and the only problem here in the beginning has been that Heidi got a little sick and Leif is dealing with a groin pain.

We keep on going with a smile on our face as it is always fun and inspiring to be here.
