It was the Hull Open today and although it was warmer than last week the wind really spoilt results. I managed 49m which shows my strength has definatley improved this year but i dont think my body liked the early start. Last week I managed 50m so i was a little disappointed to not break that again this weekend.
It was a mixed competition (male and female) today, i quallified for the elite competition which meant i got to throw against Alex Smith who qualified for the Olympic final last summer, he managed 70m but was pushed by some other great throwers. It was amazing to watch and be part of it.
I now have some technical work to go and practice and hopefully in a few weeks i can try and get a personal best. If you fancy giving hammer throw a try and are from Scarborough your welcome to come and join in my sessions.
