Canberra hammer throwers take out the Tuna Toss

johnboy 29 January 2013

The ABC has the slightly alarming news that Canberra couple Tim Driesen and Emily Nolan have blitzed the Port Lincoln Tunarama Festival Tuna Toss:

Two-time Australian champion Tim Driesen won with a throw of 30.26 metres at the Tunarama Festival.

His partner Emily Nolan also won with a toss of just over 12 metres.

Ms Nolan, who is also a keen hammer thrower, says throwing a tuna is a different kettle of fish.

“The hammer is a stationary weight on the end of firm pole or firm wire at least. This thing just moves all over the place,” she said.

Congratulations to them.
