Olympic silver medalist and Hayward Field facilities manager Lance Deal helped organize a special hammer throw competition that brought the hammer throw back onto the infield at America’s most historic track and field venue.

When we introduced the HMMR Glove in 2014, it was the first hammer throw glove made for and with input from elite throwers. Based on the feedback we are continually improving what we feel is the best glove on the market and, as a result, more and more elite throwers are trying it out too. It’s been used in the European Championships, Pan Am Games, and even made it’s World Championships debut last summer with US champion Kibwé Johnson. Now US record holder Amanda Bingson has been the latest world class thrower to give it a spin. Read more

I hate to get philosophical, but the glove is what connects a thrower to the hammer. Without a good feeling, the throw is gone. I used to make my own gloves, but they were never quite what I wanted and then I turned to some friends.
This spring I used one of Steve Bartholomew’s gloves and also did a giveaway. His introduction of the extra flap for heavy hammers was great, but I wanted something a little more special for the European Championships. I also wanted something special that would allow me to wear a watch and show off my sponsor Maurice Lacroix at the big event.
I worked with a friend in Seattle on a few handmade designs before we found a simple design that worked:
We produced a unique look that stands apart from all other hammer gloves. And not only does it have a cool and simple design, but already at the first training session it felt broken in. It worked perfectly with my resin too. With strong bison leather and secured by 550 parachute cord, I felt one with the hammer: protected and connected.
