Kevin Adams Captures 7th Junior Olympic Shot Put Title

When NBA superstar Lebron James went to the Miami Heat, he promised championships. In fact, he said, "Not one, not two, not three, not four" and so on. He didn't quite deliver that, but one person has and he has kept going and shows no signs of stopping.

Kevin Adams has a knack for winning. In fact, he has won the shot put in each age group he has been in for the past seven years.

At age 14, the Cedar Park, Texas native and the Central Texas Elite Track Club thrower added another title yesterday with his 57'10.5" throw.

How does a young man stay motivated to keep coming back?

Adams said, "The competition gets better each year, so I just gotta put in my time and put in the work so I can get better each year as well."

It's a pretty fun experience to win over and over again, so it's worth it. 

Up to this point, he has been using the glide technique. However, up next for Adams will be making adjustments to his technique, "Next year, I'm planning on transitioning to a spin. It's better for me so I can throw farther."

For a young man who hasn't even entered high school yet to so accomplished, it doesn't seem to get old for him. He keeps pushing for improvement, his goal is the 60 foot barrier, "I'm pretty close to it, I think. I'm just going to go with it, go through the motions and see what happens."
