Throwing Events

Shot, Discus, Hammer, Javelin, Weight – That’s it, right? Hardly! There’s the Superweight and the Ultraweights and the Throws Pentathlon and the Ultraweight Pentathlon and much more!

Some meets limit themselves to the Shot and Discus, while others add the Javelin and/or the Hammer. At indoor meets you’ll find the Weight (sometimes outdoors too), and occasionally the Superweight. The Ultras attract a special breed. Most track and field meets offer the major throwing events, and some meets offer throwing events only such as the new Ultraweight Championship in Florida.
