Well I won 1st place in the shotput! For some reason they canceled the discus throw though. Well in high school its a 12 pound ball and I threw it 42.9ft each time landing in the 42 ft range. 46ft is qualifying for the regionals and that’s like 2 months from now. Not bad for my first year ever throwing the shotput.
We only had a week of practice beforehand since our basketball team almost went to the state championship. But I was surprised since I saw this guy 2 times my size and saw he couldn’t throw further than me. He had no technique at all. He just took a hop step and threw. I didn’t use the spin technique though. I used a kick and throw.
Like I had my back turned away from the place that I’m going to throw and then swing my leg and took a hop step and jump and threw. I find throwing this way is a lot more effective than the spin because I can use a lot more leg strength to throw it further. After I threw the first round I heard someone in the background call me hercules. LMFAO!
Not to mention that I had to throw in jeans since my school is so poor that it can’t afford to buy shorts and coach didn’t tell me that we needed our own. But I can’t wait for the next meet now though I’m psyched.
