Quote from Payne
in all fairness to the organizers they invested a good chunk of money into the hammer ring at hayward and allowed lance to build it. there is no other cage like it. the usatf's athlete advisory council agreed at the 2005 annual meeting that it would be better to have the cage outside of the stadium in order to have the event at prime time. however they did promise also to have live video of the hammer so that fans inside the stadium could watch it. you're only the red-headed stepchild if you feel like it. i believe shakespeare said that, but don't quote me.

I believe that retired Coach Olson of Mesa Community College had a lot to do with his rapid improvement his freshman year.

Quote from Jim Jones
I do not think that countering is the most essential aspect to throwing 80+m. If that is so, it seems that most Americans would be throwing farther since that is all most American hammer guys think of. I believe some of the Soviet athletes focused more on pushing the hammer. Yes, it is important to avoid standing up in the final turns but the best hammer coaches in the world focus more on pushing the ball than anything else. I know Sedych and Bondarchuk will both tell you that pushing is the most important part of an 80m throw.

Quote from Paul Buschman
Please keep the people of Iowa in your thoughts and prayers at this time. I know there are several Ringers from the Iowa City area including Norm Balke and myself. I've been fortunate in that my residence has not been affected by flooding but I'm not sure about Norm. Also the many great U. of Iowa throwers will be affected by this as the track complex is now completely under water.

I know this has been posted before, and I should have copied it so I could have it, but I didn't. Is there anyone out there who can post the thrower's code or motto that goes something like:
Why run when you can walk.
Why walk when you can sit.
It was pretty funny, and I would like to share it with some folks.

Quote from Throwing Fan
If I remember correctly, the code/motto went something like this:
Never run when you can walk,
Never walk when you can ride,
Never ride when you can sit still,
Never sit when you can lie down,
Never merely lie down when you can sleep,
And never, ever open you wallet when someone else is buying the beverages.
If I'm in error, I appologize and welcome corrections,
Thinking of all the folks in Iowa and the Boy Scouts who were lost, or injured at their campground this past week,

Cory, Id love to hear a post from you on what you were thinking about on both of those 6th throws. Thats amazing, and it possibly could help some of the throwers or coaches on the ring...
incredible man.. The epitome of Clutch!!

Quote from KSCTHROWER
So.. What Event is Martin going to compete in, in his future (hopefully going pro) What performance is more "elite" a 67ft shotput or a 74m hammer throw? Typically people pick the event they were the best at to be their primary event.
