Mens throw a 800 gram javelin and women throw a 600 gram javelin. It is thrown through a step technique in which crossover steps are used upon release. Without the proper steps, the throw will not be as successful.
All pole vaulters use poles according to their weight. Usually there are 6 step patterns in which 6 steps on one foot are done before you plant your pole to execute the jump.
Men and women jump the same and depending upon your distance you can change your take off point so you land accurately in the landing pit. Steps are once again a huge part of a successful jump. But in-air technique is key.
Men and women also high jump the same although there are different step variations and techniques. The approach is key as well as your take off foot, in-air technique and being able to "kick" yourself over the bar once over to ensure nothing hits the bar on your way down.
