  • Thomas Freeman
    • Career Highlights

      2010 USA Outdoor champion; 2002 & 2007 NACAC champion; 3rd at 2008 Olympic Trials; 2004 NCAA HT champion; 2003 NCAA I Indoor WT champion; 2005 USA Indoor & Outdoor Championships runner-up; 1999 USA Junior champion; eight-time NCAA All American; 1999 Pan Am Junior Champs silver medalist.

      In his 11th attempt to win a USA Outdoor hammer throw title, Freeman was successful at the 2010 USA Outdoor Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. Freeman, who had finished as the runner-up at Nationals twice, and placed third on three occasions, earned the victory by throwing his personal best of 76.51m/251-0. Freeman punched his ticket for a trip to Berlin for the 2009 World Athletics Championships with his runner-up finish at the USA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore., where his top throw of 74.64m/244-10 was a new personal best and the farthest throw by an American that season. He ended the 2009 campaign ranked #1 in the U.S. in the men’s hammer throw by Track & Field News for the first time in his career. Freeman had a third place finish at the 2008 Olympic Trials, however he did not have the Olympic qualifying standard which kept him from competing in the Games in Beijing. With his runner-up finishes at the 2005 USA Indoor and Outdoor Championships, Freeman singled himself out as a star of the future in American hammer throwing. Freeman was crowned the 2004 National Champion in the Hammer Throw at the NCAA Championships. His final throw of 70.77m/232-2 earned him the title.

  • Reese Hoffa
    • Career Highlights

      Two-time USA Outdoor champion (’07, ’08); 2007 World Outdoor champion; 2006 World Indoor champion; 2008 World Indoor silver medalist; 2006 USA Indoor champion; 2004 World Indoors silver medalist; 2003 Pan Am Games gold medalist; Three-time USA Outdoor runner-up (’06, ’09, '10); Two-time USA Indoor runner-up (’04, ’05, ‘07)

      Hoffa demonstrated his consistency in recent years with his third place finish at the 2009 USA Outdoor Championships and by finishing as the runner-up in that event in 2010. Hoffa has now finished in the top five at the USA Outdoor Championships for eight consecutive years. Hoffa continued his winning ways at big events in 2008 with his triumph at the U.S. Olympic Trials. He won on his final throw of the competition of 22.10m/72-6.25, which was the second-best throw in the world in 2008. After winning the 2007 USA Indoor and Outdoor men’s shot put titles, Hoffa set his sights on the world stage, winning the World Outdoor gold medal with a throw of 22.04m/72-3.75. In fact, all but the last of Hoffa's legal throws - he threw 21.58/70-9.75 in the sixth round - exceeded the best that the rest of the field had to offer. Hoffa threw past the 70-foot barrier at 10 separate events in 2007. For his efforts, Hoffa was ranked #1 in the world in the men’s shot put by Track & Field News for the second consecutive year. He enjoyed the finest indoor season of his career in 2006 highlighted by his victories at the USA Indoor Championships in Boston and the World Indoor Championships. At the World Indoor Championships in Moscow he unleashed a massive world-leading and personal best heave of 22.11 meters/72 feet, 6.50 inches, which placed him #8 on the all-time indoor list and makes him the fourth-best indoor performer all-time. That performance propelled him to the #1 ranking in the world by Track & Field News for the first time in his career. 2003 and 2004 saw him emerge as a world-class athlete. His 2004 season was highlighted by a silver medal and personal best at the 2004 World Indoors (21.07m/69-1.5)….He set a Pan American Games shot put record on August 5, 2003 in winning the gold medal with a throw of 20.95 meters/68 feet, 8.75 inches to break the previous mark of 20.52m/67-4 by C.J. Hunter in 1995. Hoffa’s previous personal best came earlier in 2003 with his runner-up finish at the 2003 Home Depot Invitational, where he threw 20.90m/68-7. He set a PR of 21.67m/71-1.25 at the 2004 Home Depot Invitational. A huge professional wrestling fan, Hoffa competed while wearing a mask at that event, dubbing himself the “Unknown Shot Putter.” Earned All-American honors for the fourth straight year in 2001, placing third in the shot put at the NCAA Outdoor Championships with a throw of 19.93/65-4.75...runner-up at NCAA Indoor Championships with a mark of 60-7.75...two-time prep All-American and state shot put champ at Lakeside...named area Athlete-of-the-Year twice...ranked second nationally in the indoor shot...also competed in football, baseball and wrestling...says his dream is to compete in a bear suit, being brought onto the track in a cage…married Renata Hoffa on November 26, 2005.
