Andreas Thorkildsen is the 2004 and 2008 Olympic gold medalist in the javelin. Add to that his European medals and World Championships medals, and you have a man who knows his craft. Thorkildsen has thrown since he was 14 and has Age group world records. Watching him throw and compete, when he is on, is great sport as Thorkildsen is a fine competitor. Andreas had a tough last year, but as he told us in this interview, his Winter training has gone quite well.
