ThrowsTalk is at sunny California and we had a chance to talk with Double Olympic Champion in Javelin Throw – legendary Andreas Thorkildsen. Andreas is the first male javelin thrower in history to be European champion, World champion and Olympic champion. He was Olympic champion in 2004 and 2008, European champion in 2006 and 2010, World Champion in 2009 as well as a three-time silver medalist at the World championships in 2005, 2007 and in 2011. He set a world junior record in 2001. He has a personal best of 91.59m set in 2006 – that is an impressive achievement list.
In this interview, Andreas is talking about his recent hip surgery, about recovery and plans for this year.
