July 18th Meet

In order to get ready for the World Championships in Moscow, Russia, I am hosting a throwing meet on July 18, 2013 at Ferguson Field at Ashland University. The meet will start at 1 PM starting with the men's hammer then on a rolling schedule with women's hammer, men's shot, women's shot, men's discus, and then finally women's discus. There will be a $20 entry fee and this will allow you to compete in every event if you would like. This is a USATF sanctioned meet and weigh-ins will start at 12:15. Come and enjoy a fun competition at Ashland University and please email me at agkiii@yahoo.com for entering in the meet, you will also be able to walk up the day of. If you are a junior athlete please email me your age and what size implement you will be throwing.

Helping at Jud Logan's Track Camp

I helped Jud at another one of his camps this summer as an Instructor. As usual, the campers enjoy watching an elite thrower compete... Or practice. So I delayed my practice until later in the day so the campers could watch. Every year they enjoy it!

Jud, who is always a classic emcee explains what is going on...

I know you can't see that well here, but this shows how the over 200 campers are dispersed to watch. Some are on the shaded hill, and others are sitting in the sun on the bleachers.

And we are about to begin!

Jud is directing the campers in a chant, "USA! USA! USA!"

Thanks, Jud, for a great time!
