Alternative Olympic Sports: Tuna Tossing

by | 31st, January 2012

ALTERNATIVE Olympic Sports features the turna toss at the 51st Tunarama Festival in Port Lincoln, Australia.

Jacqui Hockaday won the ladies event with a toss of 9.10 metres.

Matt Staunton from Perth took gold in the men’s event with a toss of 25-metres. He offers a handy coaching guide to would-0be tuna tossers:

“I found out earlier in the year that I didn’t have to do all the the running and jumping I normally do, so I’ve been able to dedicate myself to throwing so that means getting bigger and stronger. I’ve put on 10 kilos since last year and most of its muscle.”

Do you see how good tuna is for you?
