About Ben

Hi, I am Ben East and I have been competing in athletics with Team Kennet since I was 7 years old. Initially I competed in Quad Kids and discovered my love for throwing the vortex.

Watching Luke Angell compete ignited my passion for the javelin. Soon after at the age of 11, I could finally start to train in the javelin with Luke as my coach.

Working with Luke has allowed me to achieve my full potential due to his commitment and passion to the sport and his athletes.

I now train as much as I can, striving to better myself and improve my technique, always looking forward to what I can achieve in the future.
