PA Radio – Episode 214: Derek Woodske

 Small town, big talent.

This week we feature our conversation with Derek Woodske [@DerekWoodske], NCAA All American and National Champ in track and field. Although Derek has proven himself a standout athlete and strength coach to boot, there’s something else that makes him unique. Having grown in a small British Columbia town with a population of 250, Derek had limited exposure to athletic talent or even competition for perspective.

A 16 year old and 185 lb Derek Woodske did a barbell back squat for the first time in his life at a local fair. After successfully completing 425 lbs, no one in his small town seemed to bat an eye. It was only by chance, circumstance, and one whopper of a lie did Derek make it out of his insulated community and on to compete in hammer throwing at the highest levels.

EMPOWER YOUR PERFORMANCE.

We may hate the internet, but it's where you can find Derek Woodske. He is on Facebook and IG under the name @DerekWoodske. Keep your eyes peeled for the developing website, www.ecobolic.com. It's looking pretty badass already.
