Here is a message from Griffen:
Before I got a private lesson from Mark Mirabelli, I was throwing the javelin all wrong. My grip was wrong, my technique was wrong, and I wasn’t throwing it up. During my training session he taught me the right way to grip it, how to throw it up more so it had a good arc, how to improve my throwing technique and a three step skip. I have more than doubled my distances!!
Now, thanks to my training session with Mark, I have qualified to compete at the National Junior Disability Championship in Michigan and I have already set a national record in my classification (Ambulatory Class F43) for the javelin!
