Athletics for Women: Javelin Throw


By utilizing only one arm, a metal-tipped spear (about 2.2-2.3 metres long) is thrown as far as one can. The participant must hold the javelin at its grip with his/her little finger closest to the tip of the implement.

The women’s javelin must weigh at least 600 gram and as mentioned earlier be 2.2-2.3 metres long.

A throw is only counted, if the participant's back never faces the direction of the throw; the javelin is thrown over the upper part of their throwing arm, and they do not cross the scratch line, at any time. The javelin must also land tip first and within the marked twenty-nine-degree sector.

The throw is measured from the point where the tip touches the ground first. Participants will commonly throw 4 or 6/competition. If there is a tie between the participants, the winner will be the athlete with the next-best score.

The Past:

The sport evolved from the everyday use of the spear in warfare and hunting. It was included into the Ancient Olympic Games in 708BC as part of the pentathlon. It has been part of the modern Olympic Games programme since '32 for women.
