Get helpful advice from Brian Bedard, Colorado State University Head Coach. He guided his team to the school’s first ever Mountain West Conference Outdoor Championship title. With over 22 years of track coaching experience, Bedard, has some great knowledge to share with all you involved in throwing events.
Coach Bedard speaks to both coaches and throwers. When one watches this, you can’t help but think that no matter what sport, the ideals of Olympic athletes and coaches aren’t just applicable to one sport, but to all sports.
With the Olympic Games this summer, many of your athletes probably watched track and field and dreamed of glory. Brian Bedard (Colorado State University) and Casey Malone (two time Olympian) give you a chance to see how Olympians train and work in their World Class Discus Throw video.
Even Olympians don’t get things right each time and need coaching, and Coach Bedard and Malone give you insight into how to teach and correct the discus throw.Beginning with the standing throw, Coach Bedard stresses the importance of balance and proper positioning at the front of the ring and how to achieve that throwing position.
The discus throw has a series of components and positions, all of which must be correctly done in order for a successful throw. But it also is one seamless motion that requires an appreciation of the full throw. Coach Bedard and Casey Malone demonstrate the full throw motion, including how to properly approach the throw upon entering the ring, and demonstrate the balance position needed to make a successful throw.
