Sean Larson Quotes
Reflect on your accomplishments here today: “I took last year off to get bigger and get better and focus more on the sport. It definitely worked out.”
Reflect back on your throws today: “I opened up with like a 52-meter throw, which is really big for me and is a great start. My second throw I hit the 53.30, which was even bigger for me, and that ended up being my winning throw. “
Did that throw affect your final four throws knowing you had a big one already? “My fourth throw was pretty bad. I really went after it and I lost a little bit of technique. I was pretty sure I had three throws over 51 or 52, so I was very pleased. Before I went for my last throw of my collegiate career, I knew I had to go out big and I went for it all. I fouled on it, but the throw felt really good. “
