Primoz Kozmus Slovenia

  • Country: Slovenia
  • Sport: Track & Field
  • Height: 6'2" / 1.88m
  • Weight: 247 lbs / 112.0 kg
  • Born: 9/30/1979
  • Career Highlights: Kozmus has come a long way since finishing 36th in the hammer throw at the Sydney Games a dozen years ago in his first taste of big-time international competition. He didn't wind up making it to the medal stand until the 2007 World Championships, winning silver after a sixth-place finish at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, but that performance proved to be a harbinger of things to come. Kozmus improved to gold in Beijing in 2008, continuing the string of success one year later with first-place finishes in the Worlds and World Athletics Final. Deciding he'd reached his athletic peak, Kozmus abruptly retired after the 2009 season, but he returned after just a year away and, after some initial rust, is back on top. Kozmus says his goal is to win another Olympic gold in London by throwing over 83 meters - his personal best is 82.58. Considering his pedigree, there's little reason to believe he can't.
  • Previous Olympics: 2008,2004,2000
