  • 50 Next Year

    Happy 49th birthday today to Yuriy Syedikh. I was lucky enough to see him throw several times. What do you think was his best meet?

    The pat answer would be Euros '86, but I think that the OG '76 as a breakthrough was probably the most memorable. It signaled the end of the 3 turners.

      Excuse me, Mike, but Yuriy's WR throw was with 3 turns!

        Indeed it was. Several top throwers still use three turns.

          He uses the Byrds technique: Turn, Turn, Turn.

            Not being a hammer maven myself, who pioneered the 4-turn technique?

            Was it Litvinov?
