Adventures in Deutschland Part Deux

Hey everybody! Another good meet today. Almost everybody in the top 10 was here. I ended up in 6th place with a throw of 69 high. Again I had some big throws, but they were out of sector. I had a monster somewhere around 73m so I'm excited that i'm so close to something huge! Anyway, tomorrow will be a rest/relax day as I get to just be a track fan. The rest of the meet goes off tomorrow and its virtually a who's who of track and field. I don't have another meet until the 28th of Aug in Reiti, Italy. So it'll be training and seeing the sites. Love you guys!

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.
