I helped my training partners Kibwé Johnson and Crystal Smith launch a website on Friday. Check it out if you get a chance. Both are very accomplished throwers. In 2007, Kibwé won the silver medal in the 2007 Pan American Games and competed at the World Championships. He also holds the collegiate record in the weight throw. Crystal, a native of British Columbia, is the former Canadian national record holder.
Kibwé and Crystal moved to Kamloops after the 2008 season and have slowly transitioned to a new style of training. Their old style of training was very strength-based. The new style of training is, in many ways, the exact opposite. We have ten throwing sessions every week and never lift heavy weights. It’ll be interesting to follow their website as they discuss their training, their progress, and the transition to this new system. For example, in one of the first posts, Kibwé compares the two styles of training.
