September 2o11 – Javelin

After I competed at OFSAA last spring I never stopped thinking about the Track and Field events.  I was so happy to get a call from Bill Heikkila from the Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club and I started to work under his training.  I absolutley love the the training and learning the proper technique.  I feel very fortunate to be coached by such an experienced former Olympian.  His passion for the sport is contagious.  I know I’m in good hands and I’m doing everything I can to progress with the javelin.  My next big Javelin goal is to win at OFSAA Spring 2012 so I know I have a lot of work ahead of me.

I’ve never had any formal training but I’ve practiced a lot on my own.  I was very thankful that my school lent me the equipment so I could train on the weekends and evening during track season.  I just wasnt’ sure if I was doing the right thing.

I love the throwing events since I’m a very technical person.  I am willing to repeat things until I get it right.  My entire life I’ve practiced and perfected taekwon-do patterns which are a series of self-defense motions.  I’m used to repetition and I love the satisfaction when you can measure your improvement by a tangible distance.  I would love the opportunity to see how far I could progress in the throwing events with the assistance of proper coaching and guidance.  I feel I have the strong core strength and overall coordination from taekwon-do plus the self dicipline, drive and focus for individual sports. Competing at the International level several times has also given me the confidence to deal with high stress situations so that I can perform at my best.  I just need to be told what and how to do these events better.
