On the 9th of August 2020, Greg Holden, American Master in Shot-put threw an American Record in the category 60-64 year, 5K Shot put at the Arizona Desert Throwers, Scottsdale,
I’M PLANNING TO MAKE IT IN THE PODIUM AT THE OLYMPICS IN TOKYO THROWING WITH ONE OF THESE DISCS
He reached a fourth place with a distance of 66.46m at the World Championships in Doha 2020 recently and has been training with the ATE Slo Spin, Medium Spin and Gold. Although he used the Gold during the finals in Doha, he doesn’t have a particular favourite one.
“THE ASPERO SHOT IS REALLY TIDY, GRIP IS NICE AND FEELS REALLY NICELY BALANCED”
“I love throwing with ATE products, the shot-put is very well balanced, you can feel the difference when you throw it. The grip on the Aspero shot-put means I can get all my power into the shot without my fingers slipping at delivery.”
‘THIS SHOT-PUT IS THE MOST COMFORTABLE AND SITS PERFECTLY IN MY HAND’
She is currently the only active F41 female athlete in the United Kingdom and had smashed the minimum entry standard for Tokyo 2020. Unfortunately she was not into the selection as she is under 18.
‘I AM LUCKY TO HAVE ANOTHER PLACE WHERE I CAN EFFECTIVELY THROW THE ATE DISCS.’
He planned to combine the 1.75 and 2kg discus to gain experience and measure up to the elderly .
Irina Rodrigues, who competed in the 2012 Olympics, is now, like Rachel Andres, preparing for the 2021 Olympics. Both of these wonderful throwers have given us a short summary of their favourite ATE discus to be used in the olympics. Both the Indra and the Gold discus are good for Irina to throw, the Superb Spin is ideal for use in strong winds. According to them, the ATE discus are the most affordable and yet the best discus on the market at the moment.
Yaime Pérez was training a few weeks with the ATE Indra Discus in preparation for the World Championships in Doha. During that training she was able to receive better throws and longer distances and because of that fact she decided to use the Indra discus for the competition in World Athletics Championships, Doha, 2020. Not only the qualifications were reached with one great throw, but during the finals she proved herself to be a strong athlete.
All of the discs have an amazingly smooth rotation going through the air that lends greater stability and better flight overall. The ATE Superb Spin I have found to be a very versatile discus for all wind conditions and all training types. Even on days I am doing slow throws to work on form, the Super Spin will still rotate fast and increase distances. The Indra I have found works best for crosswind and headwind and requires a faster spin and whip to take flight. But on my fast spinning days, this discus flies the furthest. The Gold I have found to be best suited for days with little to no wind. All of these discs will be a valuable asset to my competition line up.
Every Fuego is perfectly balanced and hand made with a unique look (every Fuego looks different). Its unique swivel gives this hammer a more stable and more aerodynamic flight, because the wind has less influence on the wire and the handle. We call this technology, Our Hyper-Spin Swivel. The wire does not turn with the hammer during the flight.
