TO BE A VALID THROW

Each athlete is allowed 3 trials (4 on championship day) The throw must be commenced from a stationary position. The athlete must not leave the circle until the discus has landed The athlete must not touch the top of the circle or the ground outside the circle during the throw with any part of their body. They are allowed to touch the insideof the ring. The athlete may enter the ring from any direction (but preferably from the rear half) but must exit from the REAR HALF of the ring. The athlete may, during the course of each trial, stop and place the Discus down in the ring and recommence the attempt, providing this occurs only once in any one trial, and no other infringement has occurred. If the athlete drops the Discus it may not be picked up and so it will be recorded as a no throw. The Discus must land so that the imprint mark is within the inner edges of the sector line.

 

METHOD OF MEASUREMENT

Official select the edge of the imprint mark made by the Discus closest to the ring where it first lands. The selected point is marked by a spike holding the zero end of the tape. The tape is drawn tight and through the centre of the circle. The distance is measured at the point where the tape crosses the inner edge of the ring. Each measurement is to the nearest whole centimetre below the distance thrown unless it is a whole cm. If the discus hits the cage and deflects back to land in the sector, it shall be a valid trial and measured. Ties are broken by referring to the next best throws.
