How It Works

Using a hand, a metal-tipped javelin is thrown as much as possible. The athlete should catch his little finger with the javelin holding his knock and hold close to the tip of the execution.

Men's spear should weigh at least 800 grams and women's spear weighing 600 grams, while weighing should be 600 grams and 2.2 meters.

To be measured for throwing, the athlete should not return to the landing area at any level during his approach and throw; They should throw a spear at the upper part of their throwing arm, and they should not cross the foul line, aka scratch line at any time. Javillin must be given a tip in the first marked and 29-degree area.
If the tip first touches the ground, then the throw is measured from this point. Athletes will usually toss competition every four or six times. In the event of a tie, the winner will be the athlete with the next best effort.

This was done because in 1984, after the world record of 104.80 meters by Uve Hone of East Germany, men were at risk of throwing spears beyond the available space in the usual stadiums.
