About Us

HammerThrow.org was founded in the late 1990s by 1956 Olympic gold medalist Harold Connolly. After retiring from a long career, Connolly used Hammerthrow.org as a tool in his quest to introduce the hammer throw to a new generation of throwers. The site is now maintained by the non-profit Evergreen Athletic Fund and its president, Swiss hammer throw champion Martin Bingisser.
