--Casey Malone, 6th place at the 2004 Olympics
"Iron Wood was my introduction to what elite level throwing was all about. Until attending Iron Wood, I thought throwing was a fun challenge that could occupy my time in between basketball and football seasons. The camp planted the seed of an Olympic dream in me and encouraged me to have an identity shift from a basketball player throwing for fun to a discus thrower playing basketball for fun. It was truly a life changing moment for me when Mac Wilkins arrived at the camp and passed around his gold medal. Holding that medal had a tremendous effect on me. This was truly the first time I had met people who had dedicated their life and passion to the sport of throwing. I was fortunate to be steered in the right direction very early in my throwing career by the outstanding coaches and Olympians at Iron Wood. Bud and Bart are two of the most genuine coaches and people that I know. Their total agenda is to assist young throwers, and they have developed an environment at Iron Wood that is second to none and improving every year. I thank them for creating a phenomenal experience for me and thousands of young throwers. When asked if I know of a good throwing camp, I always start to answer "Iron Wood" before the question is finished".
