The hammer and the weight throw have one of the longest traditions in our sport. Amber Campbell is an athlete who throw a 20 lb implement indoors and a 12.5 lb outdoors (the hammer). ” I spin three times indoors and spin four times outdoors, but in both, it is all about one’s speed in the ring.” noted Amber Campbell during a quick chat with RBR.
Amber Campbell is focused on 2012, she makes that quite clear. ” all of the competitions and training are about making the World Championship and Olympic teams. So, as we get closer to the event, the competitions take on a larger role.”
Amber is a modern athlete. She knows that she has to promote her sport. She trains by herself-it is her coach and her, and she likes it that way!
For Amber Campbell, like the other athletes, 2011, 2012, 2013 are important, ” It is a lot of planning now, this season builds on next season, and so the workouts, the competitions, take on more importance.”
