Caleb Stuart Part 2

Caleb Stuart ‘The Man Mountain’

The Next Goal

At 25 years old, Caleb has about 5-10 years before reaching his prime as a hammer thrower. As well as being an impressive performer, Caleb could be viewed as a gentle giant. His respect and friendship for his predecessor, Arniel (who helped him during the SEA Games), says a lot about his character. We saw him giving a motivational lecture to the Leyte ‘Yolanda Victim’  children at the National Open.


Inspiring the Next Generation

Caleb wants to inspire and help teach the next generation of throwers for the Philippines. He has expressed interest in conducting throwing clinics and in being an example of success from hard work.

Caleb came back to the 2016 National Open and successfully defended his National Title in the Hammer Throw.

“I only have respect and praise on the humble giant, and I strongly believe that any companyor product he will help endorse will greatly benefit due to his good nature and character, as well as his status as a SEA Games Champion. He does need support to reach his Olympic goals. Perhaps a company might be interested in linking up with the clinics for example.”
