      I have a t-shirt that has autographs of Olympic Gold Medalists on it. During the last trials in Sacto, I was able to garner Cy Young's autograph and I doubt if I'll ever run into a living gold medalist that would pre-date the 1952 Olympics (I never could track down Bob Mathias, even though he was at those Trials). Mr Young was astonished that anyone would want his autograph or even know who he was. For some reason, he printed his name on the shirt. According to a 2008 article in the Modesto Bee, Young is 80 years old and still works 10 hour days on his ranch.

        As someone else said he is American. Hostetler, Wolff (who threw 234 yesterday) and Yurkovich (187 yesterday, 3rd in Olympic Trials) are all from Oregon's Newberg high school.

              Hostetler's Throw

              Would have placed seventh at the '08 Olympics

                Thank you! Excellent technique. Maybe he is a fraction late in straightening the left knee at the realese.

                  And FWIW, he was close to a meter short of the foul line.

                  So we have two athletes who have met the "A" standard (81 meters) for the World's and we're barely into April. Nice.

                    Hold the presses!

                    USC claims the Pac-10 Javelin record :lol:

                    ( looks like they later edited their release to acknowledge Hostetler's mark. )

                      At least they were kind enough to casually mention " however, almost simultaneously Oregon's Cyrus Hostetler threw 272-10 (83.16m) in Eugene, Ore. to establish a new Pac-10 record". One has to wonder if the time of either throw was officially noted.

                      Oh well, can't blame SC for trying to pump up interest in a program that draws about as many fans at a home meet as we draw for HS meets in Eugene; lest anyone think I'm SC-bashing, I'm an SC grad ('72).

                        Great blog by King Cyrus himself.....

                        "I had the farthest throw in the world. Yes that’s right the WORLD. I couldn’t believe it.

                        I ran to my coach and wanted to give her a hug but there were officials saying that I could not go onto the track at all. so I stayed just inside lane one, but I had nothing to say to her, we were suppose to go over to her to ask her for pointers on what to fix but I couldn’t image that we would really work on anything after a 27.5 foot PR on the year. But as a joke I asked her if there was anything I needed to work on. The crowd laughed."

                          Here's what I posted on the Corey White thread:

                          USC is saying that White's mark was a Pac-10 record.

                          http://usctrojans.cstv.com/sports/c-tra ... 09aac.html

                          That's probably not true. The Jav at the Texas Relays and the Jav at the Pepsi meet in Eugene were scheduled to start at exactly the same time (1:30 pm Central, 11:30 am Pacific). But Hostetler got his big throw in the first round, while White's came in the third round. Assuming both events went off on time (and the Register Guard report certainly suggests that the one in Oregon did), White never did have the record.

                              Just realized that we haven't seen any marks from Montague yet this year. With him in form, joining Hill (who is only a couple of feet off his PR), White and Hostetler, this could be the best NCAA javelin in many a year.

                                Is that 'many' as in 20 years or as in 'forever'?
