Pawel Fajdek, Valerie Pronkin, Wojciech Nowicki speak about the nuances of hammer throwing at 2017 London WC Presser


I love the throws. I have a picture up of Imre Nemeth in my home. I have pictures of Miklos Nemeth from his wonderous javelin throw in Montreal. As a Hungarian-American, I have a special affinity to the hammer.

We were treated to Pawel Fajdek, Valeriy Pronkin, and Wojciech Nowicki really speaking about the secrets of the hammer. Fajdek is a fantastic athlete. The Polish star loves his event, and if you provide him questions with some knowledge of the event, he will reveal more (and he did here). I have not spoken to Valery Pronkin, but he speaks and looks like he comes out of a novel by Turgenev or Gogol. Pronkin was not happy with his throwing, and he noted that. Wajciech Nowicki was pleased with his medal and his PB this season.

If you are a throw coach, keep this one in your file (we have included all 52 videos from the 2017 London World Champs in our program now).
