    Great annotations of what they're thinking/doing during the throw. Thanks for posting!

    Hmm, Marissa doesn't have one of those weird air-borne faces that we've seen in all of the pictures of skaters in mid-jump. I wonder if the espn photo was a real time-lapse photograph, or a composite.

    Thanks for sharing Coco. That was really interesting. I'll probably check out some of the other sports they did too!

    It seems like a composite b/c Simon stops being in the frames after the throw. Thanks Coco for posting.

    Cool! I wonder if they had her do several single or double throws & thus the lack of jumpface.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.
