Discus Throw

Men throw a 1.6K discus, women throw a 1K discus.

Techniques include the standing throw as well as a bunch of variations of a spin technique.

Hammer Throw

Men throw a 12 lb hammer and girls throw a 10 lb hammer. The weighted ball usually made of iron is attached to a metal wire which then attaches to a handle. It is thrown by a variation of spins.

Javelin Throw

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.

Pole Vault

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.

Long 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.

High Jump

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.
