RunBlogRun: Pawel Fadjek is one of the more colorful athletes in the throwing events. I have watched him throw the hammer many times. His interviews after medals, are to the point, humorous and full of an enthusiasm for his event. I remember the crowd watching Pawel in Eugene at the Pre Meet a few years ago. He was pleased to see hammer fans outside of his country, Poland.
