If you are a frequent visitor to this site you will notice that there are new pictures up and perhaps the donation button on the left hand side of the screen. I would like to take a moment to address that. Many of you may or may not know that unlike a great deal of Olympic Athletes Amber does not get a full sponsorship ride. She does get a great deal of support from Sports Doctors Inc. and other's from the Myrtle Beach area. She is grateful for that support. The purpose of the donations is to assist in making some purchases of items that she may need for her trip.
* Training Shoes
* Hammer Wires
* Phone Cards for calls back to the USA
* Training Gear

These are things that she will need to purchase that other athletes may not because of their sponsorship situation. For instance I doubt anyone from Nike is going to need shoes....

Thank You all for your Support

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.
