What do you need to work on, improve?
I definitely need to improve couple of things if I want to throw 80m next season. There are couple of technical elements I need to get rid of. On the other hand, I want to improve my technique with heavy and long implements, one would say specific strength. ;))
Where will you be living this winter?
I will stay and train at home in Slovakia until January. Then I want to change the environment and search for warm weather in South Africa. I will also return back to USA in February, March, April and May. Through my winter preparation I will train with different throwers and coaches. When back home, I will train with my sister.
Who is your coach? Do you see your coach much?
I am a self-coached hammer thrower, therefore I see my coach 24/7. ;))
Are you throwing in the off-season in practice?
I always throw, doesn’t matter if it is off season, if it rains or snows. I go out there almost every day.
Are you going to try anything new this off-season? If so, what?
I’m currently changing a lot on and off practice compare to my previous seasons. I mean the whole package – weight room numbers, throwing numbers, diet, supplements and also recovery methods. Only next season will tell if it was worth it today.
When do you plan to compete again?
I plan to open up my 2015 season in the middle of May.
