  • Conor McCullough 243-09 [Junior HT]

    I know this was posted in another thread, but I'm surprised more people aren't talking about this.

    He and Henning are indeed our future in the event, and it certainly appears to be a very bright future!

      Don't be surprised. It's a field event, and neither McCullough nor Henning is a Jamaican. (pick your smiley)

        USATF doesn't recognize a Junior Record with the big hammer anymore, but this destroys the previous best by an American:

        68.75 /225-6 Walter Henning (N. Carolina) 3/21/08

          What did the US list look like in 2009?

              Not to mention East Carolina freshman (and shirtless movie boy) Matthew McConaughey, at 222-9. In a strange twist, the "other" MM has actually signed on for an upcoming film titled "Hammer Down".

              Yes, I'm serious.

                Thanks for the re-threading. I'd missed this one. That's good stuff!

                  and now the bad news: the mark was in one of those mixed-implement competitions; McC was throwing the Junior hammer, not the big'un.

                    Could you re-title this thread (or get the OP to do so)?

                      Boo to this being the smaller implement! :evil:

                        OK, so yesterday he won the Heps at 230-10 (70.37), which is an AJR with the real hammer.

                          But I believe that will be an unofficial AJR, since the official AJR's in the affected events are now the records set with the junior implements (unless someone has thrown farther with the respective heavier implements).

                            70m is world class with the 7.26 that's 1.26 kg drop to the 6, he should be capable of 12-14m more with it when he gets enough meets. it's an impressive distance.

                              more's the pity for the IAAF to have decided only to have a single class of records where no harm would have been done simply to keep the old ones and add the lighter-weight category as well. And a pox on USATF for such a knee-jerk reaction to a bad decision.
