    am Jamaica’s discus thrower. I love being a thrower, I love being strong and athletic. I was born in Kingston Jamaica and grew up in the city of Portmore, St. Catherine



    I competed and excelled in almost every sport, track and field was my first choice, I was a sprinter, and yes I wasn’t always this big. LOL. I play football (soccer), basketball and cricket. I receive a track scholarship to one of Jamaica’s prestigious high school in Kingston Jamaica, Calabar high school. I ran track for most of my years there and I was chosen by God to throw the shot put and discus when I was a senior.



    My first year throwing was in 2000, I was introduced to the event by my best friend up to this day, world class and elite decathlete, Maurice Smith. I won a surprise discus bronze medal my first year throwing. I didn’t make the shot put final that year. The following year I graduated in 2001, from Calabar high school as a double gold medalist in both shot and discus.



    It was a blessing to receive a full athletic scholarship to attended Central Arizona College, in Coolidge Az. I was all American in both shot put and discus my 2 years there. I receive another full athletic scholarship to Louisiana Tech University making me the first in my family to pursue an advanced degree. I graduated from La Tech with a psychology degree. After graduating, I decide to stay in Ruston La and train with my university coach, Larry Carmichael. I made the world championship team in Osaka Japan in 2007 and qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing China.



    I have been training and working real hard so that I can make it to the 2011 world championship games in Korea, and the dream quest of competing in the Olympic Games in London 2012. Throwing the discus has its ups and downs being on the world stage, but I am focused and willing to make sacrifices to achieve my goal. Thank God for the support of my family, friends and fans. I wish blessings to the people who stand by me and keep on believing in me, as I keep on believing in myself. Continue to show me your love and support because it’s through this, why I can throw far.

    Koji Alexander Murofushi is the eldest son of Shigenobu Murofushi, who was a famous hammer thrower, known as the "Iron Man of Asia".



    Koji entered Narita High School (Narita city, Chiba Prefecture, Japan) at the age of fifteen, where he tried out various athletic sports, under the famous manager, the late Tsuguo Takita. He started hammer throwing under his father's careful guidance. The first record of his life in a competition was 44.26 meters in April 1989, just after entering high school. He threw with a double spin form, using a 14-pound (6.35kilogram) hammer for high school students.



    In 1991, he set a new high school record, 68.22 meters with a 14-pound (6.35kilogram) hammer and achieved the best high school 61.76 meters with a 16.01-pound hammer in his second year. In 1992, his senior year, he marked 73.52 meters with a 14-pounder, and also set the high school best 16-pound record 66.30 meters. He also won the inter-high competitions in 1991 and 1992.



    In 1993, Koji enrolled in Chukyo University, where his father taught. In April, 1995, he became the third Japanese hammer thrower to break 70 meters, recording 71.02 meters at the Gunma Relay Carnival. He held top place at the Inter college competition championship for four years. Koji set the Junior Japan Record, the Student Record and many other records.



    He enrolled in the Chukyo University Graduate School of Physical Education in 1997, at the same time as he entered Mizuno Corporation, and he is taking advantage of the advice and guidance of professors there in his studies and throwing. In April 1998, he marked 76.65 meters in Gunma Prefecture, breaking his father's long held national record. In August at the World Championships in Athens, he made it into the finals and broke open the door to the world.



    Though Koji had been a leading Japanese hammer thrower since he was teenager, in May 2000, he broke 80 meters for the first time, throwing 80.23 meters and winning the Osaka Grand Prix. This made him one of the top athletes in the world. In June 2003 in Prague, he set a new record of 84.86 meters, the third place world record at that time, and the best world record in the past 15 years. He placed first in the Grand Prix, Golden League, Grand Prix final, Good-will Games, and others. These were amazing achievement for Japan.



    In the 2001 World Championships, Koji got the silver medal after a well matched game with Szymon Ziolkowski (Poland). Overcoming an injury right before the 2003 World Championships, he received a bronze medal. At the Athens Olympic in 2004, Koji became the first Japanese athlete to win a gold medal in a track and field event other than a marathon since World War II. He was the first Japanese male to win a medal since Naoto Tajima, the triple jumper at Berlin Olympic in 1936.



    Aug. 29, 2011 at Daegu, won title of World Championships throwing 81m24. First Japanese to win Gold at both Olympic Games and World Championships. And won Bronze at 2012 London Olympic Games.



    On June 9, 2013, won 19th consecutive Japan National Championship title at Tokyo, Japan.



    Continuing his career as a Hammer Thrower, at the same time finding synergy between his athletic studies and athletic activities. He also hopes to be able to benefit the track and field worlds and society in general, in return for all he has received.
