Sorinex Summer Strong 8 is thrilled to host Jud Logan the Ashland University Head Track and Field Coach, and x4 Olympian in the Hammer Thrower.
Jud Logan is recognized for his success as an athlete on the international level. A world class star in the hammer throw, he has been on four United States Olympic Teams - 1984, 1988, 1992 and 2000.
Logan was a captain on the 1992 team. He has competed in the Pan-American Games, the Goodwill Games and World Championships. He held the American record of 268 feet, 8 inches in the hammer throw. Throughout his career, which included five Olympic Trials and nine national trials, he has never finished outside of the top three finishers.
Now as Ashland University coach, Jud was named the Midwest Region men's outdoor track and field coach of the year in 2012-13. It's easy to see how the veteran coach came by that honor. At no time in school history have the Eagles enjoyed a roster this deep and talented. That's saying a lot, considering the success this program has enjoyed. Logan's ability to recruit and build strength across the board is unprecedented at AU.
