QLD State Titles were held on Saturday evening the 8th of March. I was pleased with my first throw since August 2013. It was a strong series. 4 Commonwealth A Qualifiers, and 1 B Qualifier.
Thankyou to Cedric Dubler for the video
The beauty of technical events is that you never have things perfect. The technique develops as you develop and discover your body’s strengths and limitations. Its easy to become fixated with “who has the prefect technique” however, all that really matters is the Discus, or implement lands further and further from where you let go of it.
With the help of Dad, and QAS Sports Scientists Dan and Chris we are working on making my turn more efficient so i can achieve just that. Long throws in all conditions.
Having sat through a recent education module outlining rules and regulations surrounding “Integrity of Sport” and “Pure Performance’ I feel underwhelmed and confused.
Is the integrity of the sport relative to:
1: the revenue the sport generates?
2: the importance the public places on the sport itself?
My parents gave me the strength to choose between right and wrong. Doping does not enter into my mind when I go to training and competitions. It would never be a choice I would even consider. However the bodies that are suppose to be protecting “the integrity of sport” and promoting “pure performance” are letting us down.
Experimenting with some new ideas for my cafe when it eventually opens. Patrons can take a seat and wait patiently as I randomly throw pancakes to be caught and enjoyed.
Seasons greetings this year from warm sunny Australia! Last year was shirts off sleigh rides and this year shirts off backyard calisthenics! Next season 2014 needs, as Arny says, “more energy” #yolothrow
