I throw the hammer in highschool. i was wondering if there was anyone else that throws hammer or shot put or discus at all or if they have ever done it.
what is hammer throwing
or my dad…
oh har har :p… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQNSJ1xwFXE … thats hammer throwing. its not a very well known sport but i love it
Waaaaay back in high school I Threw the discus and shot put. Discus always made me dizzy. Hammer throwing has a much more intense spin I see. I wish my school had that back then.
Believe it or not (not sure how they are made today) my discus had a metal outer ring, Then wood core with a metal hub. Old I know.
How heavy are the hammers.
nice! nothing has changed really i still threw with the same discs as you did. I only really throw hammer now cuz thats my best and favorite.
Hammers vary really. A normal highschool hammer is 12lbs, but last year i competed at Youth worlds (for kids 17 and under) where we threw a 5k hammer (like 11lbs), and this year i have Junior worlds (for kids 20 and under) where ill be throwing the 6k hammer (like 13lbs). Men throw a 16lb hammer at the olympics and college and such.
er…how about javelins?
