I think that was a compliment.
"The trick is to keep the tip up," Crousen says.
Before I get to that, Coach Smith decides starting with the basics would probably be a better idea.
Once I mastered that, I got to take a shot at actually throwing the javelin
Despite my build, maybe javelin throwing isn't quite for me.
So I decide to try the hammer.
"That's harder than I thought. The ball weighs like a thousand pounds."
But Coach Crousen says otherwise.
"A little bit over nine pounds," says Coach Crousen.
Just like everything else, practice makes almost perfect and after a few tries, I was pretty much a pro.
Coach says, "There you go! Boy she's a quick learner here. You got it!"
