Cyrus Hostetler made his first Olympic team after finishing fifth place in the Olympic Trials. He was one of three javelin throwers who had the Olympic ‘A’ standard. When not throwing the javelin, Cyrus works as a website/graphic designer. He worked for the project management team for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials-Track & Field, where he did front end web design and a good amount of graphic design. Training four to six hours a day, Hostetler is thankful he has flexibility in his schedule to work everything in. Some of his other hobbies include cooking, baking, watching movies and being outdoors. He has an older sister, Fayth, and an older brother, David. In high school, he was an all-around athlete as he took part in football, basketball, baseball and track. Didn’t begin throwing the javelin until his senior year of high school in 2005.
