Track and Field
 

Abstract

During the course or a hammer throw, a thrower winds the implement a couple or three times around the body while maintaining ground contact with both feet. Subsequently the athlete executes three or four rums where the whole body rotates with the hammer by alternating between double and single support. The speed at the time of release will dramatically affect the distance thrown with the angle of release also playing a role at that instance. It is imperative for the practitioner to understand the various factors that will positively affect the hammer velocity during the course of a throw.
