Remember when you felt as young as Jacko Gill?
Jacko is The Beast of New Zealand — he’s the hardest-training young shot putter in the world. To watch him work out, have a look at this short YouTube video and be amused.
From an interview:
How did you get started in your chosen sport?
When I was young I decided I needed a challenge and wanted to get our Takapuna Athletics Club record. I started throwing the shot put in our backyard for up to six hours straight every day…. I love the combination of explosive strength and speed you need to be able to throw far in the shot put. Every day is a challenge and I love training and getting strong. [Italics mine.]
