  • Hammer, Murofushi

    leichtathletik.de reported yesterday about an impressive early series of Japanese hammer thrower Koji Murofushi. Apparantly, all six of his throws were over 80 meters, with 82,36 the furthest (81,06/81,49/81,66/80,29/80,69). That's only about a meter under last years best world mark. I've liked Murofushi for some time now, this may become his break through year...

      I remember reading about Karl-Hans Riehm, West Germany, throwing the hammer in a meet 6 times- and 6 times he broke the world record at the time.....like 252 feet or something!
      Amazing to see human potential and development and surpassing previous achivements.
