Anita’s Taxi is here!
Here is how to do it right if you really want to be successful. Pay attention to the details and do what is needed.
For the last four years Anita Wlodarczyk, the 2012 Olympic and 2013 World Championships silver medalist in the women’s hammer throw, comes to the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista (San Diego) CA to train. She is accompanied by her coach Krzystof Kaliszewski, and physiotherapist Joanna Madajczyk.
Doing drills correctly over and over is a big part of her program. There is no magic, just a good plan, hard work, good technique and a commitment to doing everything the right way. For example; delivery work with the weight. Wind and throw 50 throws right sided, 50 throws left sided.
FYI – In addition to their coaching and physio/massage responsibilities, Joanna pulls the hammers from the ground and loads them in the taxi’s trailer. Krzystof ‘drives’ the car back to the circle. Anita throws the hammers back out into the field to complete their continuous round trips.
