Last night, Iowa throws coach Eric Werskey broke down the NCAA Championship discus technique of Laulauga Tausaga in a live Mcthows.com webinar. That presentation is now on Youtube.
If you coach the discus, you’ll want to check it out, as Eric provided some very interesting insights on technique, training, and the art of coaching.
You can find the video of that webinar here.
Also, check out the @iowa_throws instagram page, as after the webinar Eric posted some additional vids of Lagi’s throws.
Also, check out this post in which Coach Werskey breaks down Lagi’s technique in written form.
Also, if for some strange reason you seem to have a lot of extra time on your hands, check out the vids of these previous webinars:
