    Personally I think that congratulations are in order at the end of a silver medal winning performance. The competition is over so there is no need to continue "coaching" at that point, if that's what you want to call it. He apparently just wanted to berate her. Maybe he saw that gold medal as $ signs for his coaching business.

    It kind of reminded me of some really sad displays I've seen out of some little league dads.

    What ever happened to "Hey, we'll get 'em next time, great job today, I am so proud of you." If that is what the SILVER MEDALIST gets from the coach, what should, say, Adam Nelson be receiving? Sounds like what he said was gibberish, like he didn' t know what to say, so he just filled in the space. "Meat grinder"? Good grief!

    The Ring experts have spoken: Jenn doesn't deserve constructive debriefing that might damage her self esteem. Her coach shouldn't raise his voice to her so she can hear him across the security gap at a loud stadium because she might take it personally as if he was yelling at her. Because she has a nice body, she is entitled to a support posse that treats her with more worshiping respect. From that short clip, it is obvious that that coach does not know anything about pole vaulting or competition strategy. He should instead have jumped out of the stands and given her a great big Bela Karolyi bear hug. I'm glad some Ring members have planned the future for Jenn and shared their views about a non-throwing coach in this throwing message board. Well, at least Bela was a hammer thrower...

    but you won't find any made bigger than 109mm. Because all metals are subject to expand in heat a 110mm shot may be legal indoor at 70F but not outside in 90F.
    I had Polanik make me some 110's a few years ago and many failed inspection in summer meets because of too large a diameter. The powder paint coating added to the problem.
