HMMR Podcast Episode 315: How the coaches train

We often talk on the show about how coaches train their athletes. On this week’s podcast we turn the tables and look at how coaches train themselves.

New Balance Nationals Indoor (MA) Results

Aidan Ifkovits (New Paltz, NY) added more than two feet to his personal best to take the suprise win at New Balance Nationals Indoor. The top five throwers were seperated by little more than three feet, with national leader Tahir Hines (Allatoona, Acworth, GA) just inches behind in second place and the Morlock brothers from Ohio in third and fourth. In the girl’s competition some of the national leaders were absent, but that didn’t slow down Mary Ella Brooks (Ralston Valley, Arvada, CO), who was right at her best to claim the girl’s title.

With a new personal best of more than four feet Phillips Moore (Westminister Schools, Atlanta, GA) was the surprise winner in the Nike Indoor Nationals boy’s championship, claiming the national lead and beating out his training partner and former national leader Tahir Hines (Allatoona, Acworth, GA).
