Kibwé's Throw to Rio
It's that time again! Every four years the opportunity to don the red, white, and blue presents itself, and if training and opportunity align perfectly, the greatest stage awaits! I'm so excited to be one of the lucky few whose hard work has earned them a spot on this stage. We are four weeks out from the greatest competition on earth. It has been 20 years since an American has medalled in the men's hammer, and I'd like to change that. Let's see if we can't change it together!
Now, although the opportunity only comes every four years, I have worked every year, for far more than four, to reach this dream. There is no way I could have accomplished this without the help of my coaches, family, friends, and supporters along the way. I'm calling on you guys again, to help support me going into Rio. This fundraiser will help cover training and travel expenses related to Olympic Trials, as well as expenses related to my wife and children joining me in Rio to cheer me on to the Olympic podium. This is a tremendous expense for Team Johnson, and we appreciate any contribution, big or small, to help us in reaching the ultimate dream. Thank you for sharing this journey with us!
Let's go get some hardware!
