I’ve been busy covering the hammer throw online for a long time. My first hammer throw webpage was HS Hammer.com, a compilation of news, results, and rankings for American youth throwers. The project initially started as a depository for Bob Gourley’s national rankings, but it slowly grew and now it is entering its 15th season. My own personal blog started much later, but is still entering its seventh season. I’ve also worked on quite a few other projects. As I mentioned last year, a lot of effort is wasted when I am trying to run in all directions at once. I focused my efforts on my personal blog and introduced subscriptions that gave members access to premium content. But that was just the first step in the plan.
Today I am happy to announce the launch of HMMR Media, an online platform for the throwing events. By building off the work I have done over the past 15 years, HMMR Media aims to become the best online resource for throwing events online. The new webpage features five blogs that bring together training resources, commentary, and news about the throwing events:
- Bingisser’s Blog: My personal blog has slowly grown to become the most thorough online source for in-depth discussions and analysis of throws training ideas.
- Kibwé’s Blog: US champion and 80-meter hammer thrower Kibwé Johnson’s popular blog has been incorporated into the fold with his insight into his own training and commentary on the world of track and field.
- The Spin with Nick Garcia: Nick Garcia is one of the top young high school throwing coaches in the country. His blog will add some much needed discussion of training for the shot put and discus.
- The Editorial Page: Commentary on the state of the throwing events and athletics.
- HS Hammer.com: The best resource for news, results, and rankings for American youth hammer throwers
Much of the new content will be available for free, including all posts on HS Hammer.com, Kibwé’s Blog and the Editorial Page. But the archives of premium training content will remain available to members only, so sign up now for a membership to get access to a wealth of information.
While today is the final step in launching the site, it is also just one of the first steps in a long-term plan. HMMR Media will continue to grow, add new content, and keep starting thoughtful discussions which help us all become better throwers and coaches.
