Rulon Hurt: The Hammer Throwing Ex-Spy

Einsteins-Trunk_2x31So rarely does the hammer throw appear in popular culture that I feel it is one of my duties to give credit to the artists who give a little extra publicity to our sport. Therefore let me introduce you to Rulon Hurt, an ex-spy at the center of a series of thrillers written by Jim Haberkorn: Einstein’s Trunk and A Thousand Suns. Spies are tough, smart, and strong. So naturally Rulon was an All-American hammer thrower at Boise State before he started his career.

    Thanks, Martin. If I remember correctly we had dinner at one of Rulon’s two favorite Mexican restaurants – Tres Kilos – the other one being The Desperado in Hongg. But to answer your implied question: No Rulon’s father didn’t study under Bondarchuk but he knew someone who once had dinner with a guy who was coached by Bondarchuk. 🙂
