Odd unit: EU | UK | US

Athletics for Women: Hammer Throw


The competitors throw a metal ball, weighing four kilogram (for women) & attached to a grip by a steel wire no longer than 1.22 metres, as far as possible while remaining inside a 3.5ft radius circle.

A throw is only counted, if the ball lands inside a marked thirty-five-degree sector and the competitor does not leave the circle before it has landed, and then only from the rear half of the circle.

The thrower usually makes 3 or 4 spins before releasing the ball. The competitors will commonly throw 4-or-6/competition. If there is a tie between athletes, the winner will be that athlete which has the next-best score.
