Submaster hammer thrower pretty good as a bag inventor, too

Nick shows off the versatile carrier he’s marketing.

Olympian Ed Burke shares news about fellow hammer dude Nick Welihowzkjy, a Stanford grad who is marketing a backpack-style bag called the “Wrascalcarrier.” Nick is a marketing whiz, too. He writes: “Just touching base real quick to tell you about a pre-launch giveaway of our new version of the Wrascal Carrier. I thought it’d be cool to stuff 3 Carriers full of gear and raffle them off to friends/family. So we’re gonna be giving away 3 Carrier Prize Packs, which each include a free Carrier and a load of cool gear for travel, camping, and everyday commuting, etc. Check it out. The way it works is: Each person you send your link to (via email, Facebook, text, etc.), who signs up to the raffle, gets you 3 additional entries. So if you really want one of the Carriers, just sign up and send your Lucky URL (provided once you sign up) to as many friends as you think would like to win a gear-loaded Wrascal Carrier.” Nick is listed on On Tuesday night, he wrote me that he’s still throwing once a week, but is too busy to compete. “The goal is Perth, Australia, though, for [2016] master worlds. I’ll be 35,” he says.

    Thanks for the explanation. I thought for a moment that the picture was of a crater left by a hammer-thrower.
