The personal coach to Discus World Silver Medallist Nadine Muller and resident coach at Halle, where they host the greatest Throwing festival in the world, Rene talks about the German system that continues to produce generations of world class throwers and his own personal approach to coaching. A former Shot putter himself, Rene has been National Junior coach for Hammer throw, and is now the National Senior coach for Women’s Discus and produced a number of international level athletes across all the heavy throws. The Halle Werfertage has been running or nearly 50 years and regularly brings together many of the World’s top athletes across all events, as well as junior competitions at U16, U18, U20 and U23 age groups over two glorious days at Sportpark Brandberge, which has no track but where multiple circles accommodate all the competitions. It is a throwers dream and should be experienced by all keen throwers and coaches.
ThrowsTalk is intended as a site to bring you personal insight on the Throws world from current and past greats of the Throwing Community. This will be in the form of personal video interviews.
