SlingSHŌT thrower @sebastian_osborne (UMaine, FR) starting to figure out the entry with the discus. It’ll fly when the crazy winds and freezing cold die down and you can actually feel your hands and face.
Balance out of the back. I know I have mentioned it before but it it that important!
Here is a progression of drills:
1. Take a couple steps around
2. Do quarter turns
3. Half turns
To get the 360 you have to be balanced!

SlingSHŌT thrower @k_nicolai27_ is learning that the hammer is a beautiful, and philosophical, event. The athlete and the ball have to trust each other. The second you try to command the hammer, it’ll kick your ass. You have to maintain a harmonious push and pull, give and take, relationship! 👌🏼
This weeks Big West Conference Field Athlete of the week goes to Erykah McNairy ( @erykah_nicole_ )! Congrats!
Also she receives the performer of the meet for her performance at Cal State Fullerton. Performer of the meet is chosen by our throws coach.
