    Shannon starts her throw with a traditional X-step. At this point she has started her momentum moving forward and her hip rotation away from the target.

    Shannon throws with the bent elbow technique and here she is at her maximum elbow back position. Her hips are fully closed and her shoulders are rotated with her back facing the target. Her weight is over her back foot and ready to push off into the plant/pivot and she has the disc gripped in the nose down position.

    Shannon has planted her pivot foot ~45 degrees from the target and started her weight shift forward and hip rotation open. Her off arm and the disc are close to her body.
