The Future of Hammer Throw Research (Part 3)

Motion capture technology has helped provide real-time feedback to top US figure skaters.I thought my series on the future of hammer throw research was done after Part 1 and Part 2. But that was until thrower Kevin Becker passed along the link below. Becker is currently finishing up his Ph.D. in Kinesiology at the University of Tennessee focusing on motor learning and the hammer throw. We will have more on his work in the coming months, but for now Becker sent me a CNN special from last month that focused on figure skating.

The special looked at the work of Professor Jim Richards at the University of Delaware. As a biomechanist, Richards recognized the value his field could offer figure skating, but also was well aware of its limitations.

    If you partnered with Dr. Richards, you could get the funding for your hammer research from the fees that Sunday golfers would pay for his analyses.
