Throw in masters heavy weight and super heavy (56lb best comp 7.72 WR is around 16.+ for the open cat,) but I’m old it was a nat masters 0/50 Aust rec at the time.
Coach a very talented kid at the moment who throws the 5kg shot 18.60m in comp and has had a warmup no foul at 19.80m.
has one qualifier for the worlds youth and needs one more to get selected for the national youth team. Have only one shot at it left, at the end of March and hopefully the weather will be good and the peak will work.
Throwing is a lot of fun, and although this is a weights forum, and weights for a kid with moderate gentics can be a great leveler, technique is so very, very important. Strength can only take you so far.
Good luck with your throwing.
and by the way met Stephanie Brown-Tranton at a luncheon yesterday, was much prettier than expected, the games photos do not do her justice, and she was a humble and very interesting person. Great ambassador for the sport.
