Way to compete and stand strong and capable. You're ready, "eye-of-the-tiger" hungry, at peace in heart and on fire to compete. We're cheering! Bring it!!

Was ECSTACTIC when I read the news feed that you had won the trials! You're an animal! Proud to say I had the pleasure of throwing against you and watching you excel through the years. I'll be rooting for you in London! Go big, throw hard, or go home!!

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.
