Thor is the blood-son of Odin , All-Father of the Asgardians , and Jord, who was also known as Gaea , the goddess who was one of the Elder Gods. Odin sought to father a son whose power would derive from both Asgard and Midgard (as the Earth realm is called by Asgardians), and hence he sought to mate with Jord. Odin created a cave in Norway where Jord gave birth to Thor.  Months after the infant Thor was weaned, Odin brought him to Asgard to be raised. Odin's wife, the goddess Frigga , acted as Thor's mother from that time onward. Not until many decades later did Thor learn that Jord was his birth mother.

Indomitable Will : Thor has shown to have a powerful force of will, so much so that he has defied the will of his father Odin, who is his king and is bound to serve him, on several occasions if he feels the need to do so. He does not back down from any foe, does not give into a fight and is willing to lay down his own life in defense of others. On occasion, he has demonstrated the will power necessary to overcome mental domination. 
In terms of hammer throwing technique, a thrower will make either three or four, quick turns of the body before releasing the weight. If you have ever seen it performed it clearly requires a lot of balance, strength and timing. The athlete must remain inside of the throwing circle and the hammer must land within the 95 degree sector marked on the field otherwise the throw will not count.
