Back in November our historic hammer throw training facility here in Zurich officially closed and turned into skatepark. While it was a huge loss, luckily we had another option to move to: Sportanlage Sihlhölzli. Sihlhölzli is a dedicated track and field facility and sport hall located less than a mile from the city center in Zurich.
There are advantages and disadvantages to the move. The old facility had a long throwing tradition, offered perfect seclusion, and we could train whenever we wanted since we didn’t have to share it with anyone. The new facility is used by three track clubs and can get a little busy, but it also is more lively since Zurich’s best athletes train here. The sport hall has a good weight training facility and short indoor track and jumping pit. Plus there are lights installed so I can even throw at night if I have to work late.
