Abstract

Discus throwing, as all the other throwing events, is, from a physical point of view, a multi discipline event. The discus throwing action is a combination of: Jumping Ability, for the explosive action of the legs during the whole duration of the throw and particularly during the final phase, Sprinting Ability, for the smooth and quick motion across the circle; and finally, Throwing Ability, for the coordinated, efficient and effective application of the greatest force possible on the discus during the final phase. Modem discus throwing technique is a result of both current scientific and empirical knowledge. This is expressed by a thorough knowledge of the human nature and the physical laws that govern the human movements.
