About Mike
Mike Hazel has consistently proven to be among the best in the country in the javelin since 2006. After finishing second for four years in a row, Hazle claimed his first USA Outdoor title in the javelin in 2011. He ended the 2008 campaign ranked #1 in the U.S. by Track & Field News for the first time in his career and repeated it in 2011. He begins the 2012 season as a U.S. favorite to make the Olympic team. As a student-athlete at Texas State University, Hazle showed his potential with an enormous personal best his senior year of 235-7, which improved his all-time best by 25 feet from his previous best mark from his junior year. Hazle owns a B.S. degree in Exercise Sports Science and Business and a Master’s degree in Sports Management from Texas State University. Also performs as DJ Misha, a progressive house and electro artist.
