One of track and field’s greatest athletes also has one of the greatest stories.
Born as the son of javelin-throwing parents, Jan Železný was practically destined to be a star of this challenging athletic discipline. From the Olympic Games, to the World Championships, to the highest marks ever recorded in this event, Železný has forever cemented his legacy as quite possibly the greatest javelin thrower to ever live.
Thanks for watching.
