Hammers

Heavy & Light

Heavy Hammer

A lead filled hammer weighing 16 pounds for women with a handle is thrown by the athlete for three attempts from a stationary position with heals near the trig and back facing the throwing field. The thrower winds the hammer around the head and releases over the shoulder. Boots with blades can be worn for additional stability in this throw. 

Light Hammer

This throw is identical to Heavy Hammer with the exception of a 12 pound light hammer weight for women.
