EP 130 - Adriane Wilson

Bacon Bibles Barbells Podcast

Adriane was a college athlete in the shot put, discus, hammer, and weight throw, graduating from Ashland University in 2004. She is a 13-time DII All American, with 7 national titles and 6 runner up honors (to her teammate, who was ultimately an Olympian in the hammer). Adriane set DII national records in the discus and indoor and outdoor shot put, and qualified for the Olympic Trials in the shot put in ‘04, ‘08, and ‘12. She was the 13th American woman to throw over 60 feet in the shot. Adriane also has had a stellar career as a Highland Games athlete. She has won five World Championships, and set world records in 28lb weight for height ( or WoB), and the 28lb heavy weight for distance. Adriane also has a long track record as a personal coach. She has coached in many different contexts, from high school, to college, to the Warrior Games. Also the first woman to close the No. 2 Captains of Crush Gripper! Developing as a thrower: You’ve had a long career with strength sports. How did you first get into the strength side of athletics? Track and field? When do you first remember thinking that you were going to be really good at throwing things far? Being a woman in strength sports: Something I know female athletes in strength sports sometimes deal with is how our bodies don’t always fit into the stereotypically feminine frame. One thing that has always struck me about you is how ripped you are, and how unashamed you are about your muscles. I love the picture of you from behind that shows you doing a pull up in your strapless wedding dress! Did you ever have emotional struggles with developing into such a visibly strong woman? Major challenges: You had a stellar college career at Ashland University, which is how I met you. During your last year at Ashland, you experienced a pretty serious challenge that, for a normal human being, would have derailed your road to the Olympic trials. Please tell us about that. Where did/do you find your drive? Mental skills that differentiate the athletes that are able to perform to their potential? How can those skills be developed? Highland Games: I read that you kind of got into it on a whim - some friends invited you to try it out. What was it like to go from a newbie to qualifying for the World Championships the next year? What was the experience of being on Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge like for you? Getting older: Talk a little bit about what your training is like now. How have you adjusted things as you have gotten older? Coaching: I’m curious about Poliquin’s approach; Biosignature practitioner? How do you manage the balance between coaching and training yourself? Is there anything that you would like to promote? @adrisue on Instagram Into the Distance - documentary on Vimeo

#086 - Adriane Wilson - College Athlete to Cancer Survivor to 3x Olympic Hopeful to Scottish Highland Games Champion

Dirt in Your Skirt - The Podcast

Adriane Wilson was born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1980 to Rick and Rae Blewitt. She has one sister, Samantha, who is two years older than her. Adriane followed her sister around and participated in all the sports she tried; golf, softball, and track and field. She lost her Dad right before my senior year of High School so life was a little uncertain as she matured into adulthood. However, she found her passion for track and field when she went to college at Ashland University and majored in Physical Education and Health. Her college coach was 4X Olympian, Jud Logan and he guided me to a life of dedication and perseverance. His daily lessons of excellence helped me achieve athletic success and victory over the biggest challenge of my life. She was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of 23 in the peak of her athletic career. Her dream of making the US Olympic Team in 2004 was shattered. With the support of my family, coach, teammates, and the community she was able to compete and finish 5th in the shot put at the 2004 US Olympic Trials a couple months after chemotherapy. She continued training for the '08 and '12 US Olympic Trials but never quite got back to the top. In the meantime, she began competing in the Scottish Highland Games for fun. This 'fun' turned into an amazing experience of traveling the world wearing a kilt, throwing stones and flipping trees, and earning World Champion titles along the way. Now retired from competing in the shot put, she trains for the Highland Games and works as a personal trainer in two gyms in Columbia, South Carolina. Her passion has shifted towards coaching. For the last two year, she has been contracted to coach US soldiers who are wounded, ill, or injured in the shot put and discus for the Warrior Games and Invictus Games.
