The men’s shot put was one of the finest competitions in the London 2017 World Championships. As some athletes had issues, from injuries, to just rough day of throwing, others stayed on task. One of those who stayed on task was Tom Walsh, the New Zealand star who won the gold medal.
RunBlogRun caught up with Tom at the Birmingham DL and asked him, What makes you so mentally tough, and how did you stayed focused when others around you are going from good days to bad days. The answer may surprise you, but it should be on the coaching education shelves of each and every coach in the throws around the world.
