Upcoming Meets

Amber will be in action at the Mt. SAC Relays on Sunday April 20, 2008. This is the 50th Running of the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, CA which is just outside Los Angeles. It is sure to be an exciting event. The following Saturday April 26th at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, PA Amber will be going for a repeat of last year's win. This meet will have a more international flair with athletes from Canada and Jamaica. Check back soon for the results of these Olympic Development events.

Throws Information

Throwing formats
In Olympic throwing events -- men's and women's shot put, discus, hammer and javelin -- the competition begins with a qualifying round in which the entire field is divided into two or more groups. In this round, competitors take turns attempting to reach a pre-set distance that automatically advances them to the final. If fewer than 12 athletes meet the distance required from direct qualification, the 12 competitors with the best throws, plus any athletes tying for 12th, advance to the final. In the final round, competitors take turns until each has attempted three throws. At this point, the top eight-ranked competitors (plus ties) receive three more throws. The best throw of the six is counted and the athlete with the longest throw is declared the winner. In case of a tie, the second-best throw is consulted.
