Forza Athletics is happy to announce that Savannah Cook has joined our post-collegiate throwing club, beginning with the 2016-17 season. Savannah most recently competed at SUNY Brockport where she was a multiple time SUNYAC Champion in the Shot-Put. She is now putting her focus on the 20lb. Weight Throw, in which she has a personal best throw of just over 16m.
Above you will find video from our most recent practice on December 22, 2016. Our focus for this practice was to initiate a flatter entry into her first turn, while also increasing the speed of her second wind. After not throwing the weight since March, 2016, Savannah has made steady progress this week. She opens her season on December 31, 2016 at the USATF Niagara Indoor Track & Field Championships, to be held at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
