Two Leamington C&AC javelin throwers attended the Thomas Rohler Masterclass held at Loughborough University over the 2nd & 3rd December.  Thomas won Gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics throwing a javelin 90.30m.  He was there to share his knowledge and philosophy with many young UK javelin throwers as well as giving them demonstrations of strength building drills and how to improve technique.  Following on from that the athletes were then watched throwing by Thomas and some of the UK javelin perfomance coaches before giving them one to one advice on what to work on.

Both girls found Thomas to be an inspirational athlete and took many tips away with them which they plan to use during their winter training and into the 2018 T&F season.
