    Hoffa and Nelson have roughly the same PR's as Beyer and Gunthor.

    If the Hoffa and Nelson "learned" how to perform a stand throw, does anyone actually think they would be standing 21-22+m like Beyer and Gunthor!? Because thats what is implied when people make comments like "spinners and gliders stands are different, so the conversions dont matter" or "Americans do not know how to throw a stand"

    Although I understand the technical concept of conversion and the psycological importance of a big stand, I'm place more value on the stand a drill to tech the thrower how to proper re-accelerate the shot after the deceleration of being int the air moving from back to front. Traditionally gliders have been big and strong and able to over power the shot. Using the stand as a means to feel torque , seperation and the lt arm block are my main concern.

    ok...so 77' 6'' is that in a meet or in practice??? there is a BIG difference , alot of the best have done monster throws in practice , but only with time, patience, AND awards such as world and Olympic championships do they ever realise these kinds of throws in an actual meet and get crowned WORLD RECORDS.

    a few years back alot of people were saying Kevin Toth was going to break the world record ,he had just gone over 74 feet , and sure enough had practice throws of 77 feet which I saw arriving at a throwing area apparently just after he had left ,...lots of divots out over the world record out to over 77 feet!!...BUT I really think that with about 90% certainty the world record is NOT just something you can do, becuase at that level lots of us CAN do , but only a very select few ever do...it has to be something that is earned by being a champion first , otherwise the pressure of it is just too much for others to take. Besides Terry Albritton most of the world record holders of the last 30 years were also world & Olympic champions first...meaning that Christian Cantwell has all the talent to throw as far as he wants to IF he first throws well, competes well and becomes champion when it really matters...only then will it be something that he will most likely do. and personally I can say that big throws in practice are really something that haunts you more than helps you , however learning how to compete is a blessing and always brings about PRs when they matter most. and that is my wish for him...only to compete well and win.
