Justin St. Clair enters Olympic Trials with bum elbow...

There's an article in Wednesday's Tacoma News Tribune about javelin thrower Justin St. Clair's sore elbow.

Two weeks ago, while on the field practicing with coach Ty Sevin at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, St. Clair felt a pop in his right throwing elbow after unleashing a throw.

“It was like a loud shotgun going off,” St. Clair said. “It was my elbow breaking in half.”

St. Clair said he’s been going through a series of high-tech treatments on his elbow, and carries a bone stimulator with him 24/7 to try and accelerate the healing.
