This is how Tomas Walsh has dealt with the pandemic.
WELLINGTON (NZL): Diamond League shot champion Tomas Walsh has been talking about training under lockdown at home in New Zealand. Quoted by World Athletics, he said: “I can’t throw and train in the facility that I normally do, because that’s a government facility and closed. But I’ve got a wee gym set up in my garage with some weights. It’s actually very lucky, I bought an e-bike six or seven months ago, when I came home, so I’m biking to a shot put circle which is about five minutes away from my house. I’m actually losing some weight because I’m doing some aerobic work! I’m very lucky that I’ve got quite a good set up here.”
Still getting it done, Even with all the craziness out there it’s important to stay active. Stay safe out there. https://t.co/DxGVeiBXpJ
