Britney Henry (Born on October 17, 1984) is an American elite hammer thrower with big goals and a PB hammer throw of 71.27m (233′ 10″). 2010 is Britney Henry’s breakout year. Dedication and persistence earned her place as the # 2 Women’s Hammer Thrower in the U.S.A, and 14th in the world, according to the IAAF Top Rank List.
Britney’s motto: I love life and everyone in it. I train to be the best one day with @oiselle by my side. Rio 2016!
Right now, I am about 2 week into fall training, so I am not in the off season anymore but i would love to let other throwers know what I do do during the off season.
“My off season last about 2 months. With these 2 months I step completely away from my hammers and the ring to enjoy life. I am still physical activity but not my typical training routine. During this time I go for hikes, paddle boarding, relax at the beach and just enjoy doing nothing. I also spend as much time as I can with my family and friends. The training season gets busy and I don’t get to see my family as much. This is why I use my off-season to catch up.
The past off-season was a busy one for me. I flew out to New York to walk in my sponsors, Oiselle, fashion show. Had an amazing time in Telluride, Colorado at my best friends wedding and enjoy visiting with my mom who lives out of San Diego.
I am now about a week and a half into Fall training. Each year I always wonder if my love for the hammer has faded and each year it only grows.
Happy fall training everyone”
