Throw Help Jav123, Fri Jan 6 00:27
Hello all. I am new to this site. I stumbled upon it recently and am thankful that I did. It's great to see this many javelin throwers discussing the event. After working through several non-javelin related sports injuries I am back throwing more than ever and eager to improve my distances. A low to mid 60s thrower in ... more

    throwing the 400 gm Dr. Who, Fri Oct 7 14:06
    Just entered the 80 age group and trying to adjust to 400gm over the 500 gm thrown for the last several years. Cannot come within 2 meters of my 500 throws although with a much lighter javelin. Must I change my approach and form with this very light and thin instrument?

  • Finished up my season with another 80m meet in Berlin Germany. I had a great time and now I am finally back in the states.

    I haven't been home in a while. I have been busy traveling, training, and competing. Read about my last couple of competitions and see whats next for me! In the events we’ve seen so far – as in nearly all sports – world records keep improving over time. The one exception is the javelin. Steve appears on a field where javelins are set into the ground a few metres apart, representing the distances of world record throws. He tells us that the... more

    Up and coming in the USA? Anonymous, Sun Aug 21 22:37
    I hope Kara comes back for Tokyo - I think she could do well. Apart from her...Are Maggie Malone and Curtis Thompson our next medal hopes or do we need to look to the HS ranks? Will Liam Christensen, Madison Wiltrout, Sophia Rivera or Trenton Allen make it at the next level? Or will someone shock us at the 2024 trials ... more

    The 2016 Olympics, and gold went to Thomas Röhler of Germany with a throw of 90.30 meters. That came just 0.27 short of the Olympic record Julius Yego of Kenya earned the silver a throw of 88.24 meters. It's the first medal Kenya has ever won in the javelin

    The Block Christian Pavlovich, Thu Aug 18 08:55
    Hello All. I have posted videos of my throwing here before and received great comments. I am a 60 meter throw really struggling to block properly. This summer I have made great progress but I still know I am not fully activating my legs and hips into the throw. I also have a chronic problem of my block foot rolling... more

  • Garry Calvert and the WJR a friend, Sat Jul 23 17:57
    I would like to congratulate Garry Calvert for coaching Neeraj Chopra to a WJR! Coach Calvert is an elite coach, the best I have trained with or even met (including in Finland). While far from perfect, in a short period of only several months, Neeraj has managed to implement some of coach Calvert's teachings which has ... more
