Hah that made me laugh. Never thought of that factor...I guess nearly every sport has some sort of downside. Like when soccer players get in fistfights after decades of learning to avoid using their arms.

That made ME laugh.

A lot of soccer players are bad at throwing things. Probably just those of us that didn't play baseball. I think that's one reason I'm enjoying disc golf so much. I've never been able to throw anything far. It's fun to figure it out, 30 some years later.

Jussi said Henna is a competitive swimmer in the Konopiste vid. She throws far, superb wide technique reminds me of Coda Hatfield with disc never coming close to body.
