DESCRIPTION: The javelin throw is a track and field event where the javelin, a spearabout 2.5m (8ft 2in) in length, is thrown. The javelin thrower gains momentum by running within a predetermined area.


Part of the pentathlon of the Ancient Olympic Games beginning in 708 BC, distance and target throw.
Thrown with the aid of a thong, called ankyle : spiraled flight

As an Olympic discipline, the javelin throw was introduced in the 1906 Intercalated Games for men, and in the 1932 Summer Olympics for women.

Experiments with modified javelins started in the early 1980s; the resulting new designs, which made flat landings much less common and reduced the distances thrown, became official for men starting in April 1986 and for women in April 1999, and the world records were reset.

The discus throw is a track and field event in which an athlete throws a heavy disc called a discus in an attempt to mark a farther distance than his or her competitors. It is an ancientsport, as demonstrated by the fifth-century-B.C.

The discus throw is the subject of a number of well-known ancient Greek statues and Roman copies such as the Discobolus and Discophoros.

Discus is a routine part of most modern track-and-field meets at all levels and is a sport which is particularly iconic of the Olympic Games.
The men's competition has been a part of the modern Summer Olympic Games since the first Olympiad in 1896.
The discus was re-discovered in Magdeburg, Germany, by Christian Georg Kohlrausch and his students in the 1870s. His work around the discus and the earlier throwing techniques have been published since the 1880.
The first modern athlete to throw the discus while rotating the whole body was František Janda-Suk from Bohemia (present Czech Republic). He invented this technique when studying the position of the famous statue of Discobolus. After only one year of developing the technique he gained the olympic silver in 1900.
The women's competition was added to the Olympic program in the 1928 games, although they had been competing at some national and regional levels previously
