2009 Season Begins Now!!!!

Good times are coming! This Friday at 3:00pm at Doug Shaw Stadium in Myrtle Beach, SC I'll be beginning my outdoor season. My hammers have been flying like crazy so I can't wait! I'm hoping to keep the momentum from indoor season flowing into my outdoor season and grab some big numbers early. Its going to be a lot of fun, so if you're in the area and want to watch a good competition come on out! I'll post the results and hopefully a video this weekend. Wish me luck!!!

Peace and Blessings,

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.
