Wat je gaat doen

First I'll introduce myself and give a bit of history on the hammer throw, letting you know why I do the event and why it is important to me. Next up is explaining what the hammer is and covering any questions about it, then we'll move onto trying it out for yourselves, making a homemade hammer with household items. I'll walk you through my warm-up and morning activation routine so that you can experience what athletes do before training everyday.

After warm-ups and stretches, I'll teach you the basics of hammer throwing, from standing drills to foot drills and winding drills! Don't even know what that means? That's what I'm here for. I'll demonstrate drills with the homemade implement and have you use their homemade hammers to try along with me, then I'll show viewers what a "real" hammer throw looks like! Last up is time for any questions, about anything—the hammer throw, my life, my Olympic journey, or my activism.

Greetings! I'm Gwen Berry.
I've been a hammer thrower for 12 years after converting from the triple jump. I'm a Rio 2016 Olympian and 2019 Pan American Games gold medalist.

My most recognizable moment was my courageous, peaceful protest at the 2019 Pan American Games where I won the gold medal. I beat the field by 3 meters and made a meaningful salute for social injustice and economic change. I encouraged an entire country, replicating the peaceful protest of former Olympic medallists John Carlos and Tommie Smith.

I took this as part of the experiences beta tester program. Gwen is a powerful person and has great stories and insights to share. I went into this knowing nothing about the hammer and had a great time learning more about her sport and her advocacy.

Brilliant experience -- Gwen is so personable, funny and friendly; but also thoughtful, conscientious and motivating. I loved joining her on her warm up, learning the techniques of hammer throwing, marvelling at her skill and hearing about how she uses her platform to amplify the cause of those less fortunate. Would highly recommend this experience; as an athlete and an activist, Gwen is an inspiration.

Great to spend time with Gwen and learn more about her personal story as an athlete and someone who is speaking up on issues that she cares about. Her journey to the now is inspiring and motivational. Incredible human being.
