FlightScope Athletics was given yet another international opportunity to showcase the innovative technology behind the X3 Coaching System at last month's Hallesche Werfertage and JenJavelin Festival in Germany.


Hallesche Werfertage is unique in that it only showcases throwing events - with levels ranging from Under 16 to Elite - all while spectators sit within an arm's reach. Over 500 athletes and nearly 1,000 spectators attended the event this year.


The FlightScope team was able to focus on capturing data and videos on the Elite Men’s and Women’s Shot Put and Elite Men’s and Women’s Hammer Throw. Fanny Roos set the national record for Sweden in Women's Shot Put with a toss of 18.88 meters, and Brittany Crew set a new Canadian record at 18.69 meters. FlightScope data and videos were provided to each thrower who wished to review their throws from the event for further analysis.


The JenJavelin Festival is a two-day event with over 100 Javelin throwers from more than 20 countries, all in featured sections ranging from Under 16 to Elite. The X3 Athletics Coaching System was used in support of Thomas Rohler during his week-long javelin clinic. Throwers were able to review throws during the practice session of the clinic to visualize cues and see where they could improve.


Overall, both events were a great chance for coaches and players from around the world to see FlightScope's Athletics Coaching System on display firsthand and learn how and why data should be incorporated into their athletic programs.
