Title: First throw with a Sling
Post by timpa on Sep 15th, 2022 at 12:51pm
You can see from this video that Figure 8 especially hard to grasp the first time.
She (Sanna) has never touched a Sling.

   She did fine.  I tell all of my students that if you can get the projectile moving forward on your first few throws you've succeeded.

Nice!  Yep, figure-8 is definitely a tough one to start out with.

Thanks guys!
Otherwise, Fig-8 would have come later. But because of the video, it immediately came second.
It took a few throws and then she realized the trajectory. Surprisingly fast. Maybe it helped that she has been into dancing.

Yep!
But, the goal was not pure performance. Only where the sling goes.
