Since 1992, the first Olympics after German reunification, Germany has produced a remarkable number of discus medalists at the Olympics and World Championships.
I don’t mean to insult the USA, and things are looking up for us after Mason Finley’s bronze-medal performance in London last summer, but take a look at these numbers:
Olympic and World Championship Discus medals since 1992
German Men: 20 (10 gold)
US Men: 2 (1 gold)
German Women: 7 (4 gold)
US Women: 1 (1 gold)
These numbers illustrate what a great job the Germans have done in developing discus talent, and on Saturday, December 9th, at noon Central Standard Time, German Federation coach (and former Olympian) Torsten Schmidt will offer insights into how Germany has consistently produced excellent discus throwers. Torsten will focus on the training and development of discus throwers through their teenage years.
