    THE SOFT SIDE OF A WORLD CLASS ATHLETEBy Mihly Orendi

    www.gerely.hu JAVELIN THROW MAGAZINEIssue: I./dec.31.2010

    Every successful athlete has a family, friends, and supportsystem set up that allows them to compete in a high level. Iknow Barbora potkov since she was 2 years old (1982).Barunka, as we call her among friends, is a truly soft spoken,kind and loving person. Not too many people know that she hasstrong Hungarian roots by her fathers side. While growing up,Barbora learned a lot from her family about cultures, languages(speak English very well) and values for life(speak English very well), and values for life.

    Barbora and her Family (Liduska her mother,Frantisek her father, and Dalibor her brother)spend a lot of time together. As a side note,Dalibor is used to be a very good decathlete whobeat many times the world recordholder Romanebrle (see Dalibor in the middle of picture).( p )

    The total surprise for those who only knowBarbora as a javelin thrower: she holds the Czehrecord in Decathlon for woman!

    young Czeh javelin throwers for futureolympics. Through the javelin camps, wherethe youngest throwers receive a personaltouch from the world record holder, youngathletes receive not only an education ofbasic skills /drills, but a strong focus on theright thinking. When people see Czehjavelin throwers on top, no questions askedjavelin throwers on top, no questions askedabout how it happened. Luck is based onlong years of preparation, and not just shorttraining camps.

    We all whish Barbora a new world record for2011! Her new coach, another worldrecordholder will be behind her every throw,eco d o de be be d e e e y o ,who is the Great Czeh javelin thrower Janelezn.

Proposed changes would finally take effect in 1986, following another twosizable improvements to the javelin world record; the first coming in 1983, when Tom Petranoff,then of the United States, added precisely three meters to Paragi's mark, and the other in 1984,when East German Uwe Hohn launched the 800 gram implement to 104.80 meters.

    Hohn's mark only came after the new design had already been officially proposed, and contraryto a popular myth had nothing to do with the change. Indeed, the primary reason for the changewas to get rid of the then frequent flat or ambiguous landings which often made it hard towas to get rid of the then frequent flat or ambiguous landings, which often made it hard toassess if a throw should be declared legal, most famously in the high-profile case at the 1980Summer Olympics in Moscow where the eventual winner Dainis Kla only progressed to the lastthree rounds with an apparently flat throw.Ambiguous landings were also much more difficult tomeasure accurately, compared to clearly legal ones where the javelin would stick in the groundat the landing spot.

Even though his form had dipped a bit afteranother monster mark of 96.20 on May 18, there could be no question he was among theleading favorites. However, the Olympics were for him a major disappointment. He hadproblems already in the qualification, languishing more than five meters from a spot in the finalsafter two rounds with a sub-standard
