Question: Today I overheard someone say… “If an international hammer thrower is serious about being good, they will stay away from the NCAA.” Ouch. As a college coach I tend to be offended. But as hard as it is to hear that, are they right? I think the NCAA CAN be a great place for development, even for elite hammer throwers. It has it’s downsides, but it doesn’t have to be all bad. –Coach Lynden
I first met Lynden when he threw a personal best to beat me and win the always-fun Pepsi Invitational back in 2004. I’ve had some great exchanges with him over the past month that have us both thinking about what is needed to create a successful throwing culture. This one question popped out to me as especially interesting, and I hope to most more of our discussions in the future.
