Going Platinum

Amber's goal of representing the USA in the Olympics in her chosen sport of the Hammer has been achieved. She represented well placing 21st in a field of 50 strong competitors. There is a lot to say about the amount of skill that she has and the effort and determination that has gotten Amber to Beijing. So I want to say thank you to all of you for your support on behalf of Amber. I am sure that she will send out an update to say thanks personally after she is done sampling the Chinese equal to Buffalo Wings.
Thanks From Team Campbell.

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.
