Sheaf

The sheaf is a stitched burlap bag stuffed with twine rope. The standard sheaf weight for women is 10 pounds. The athlete will use a pitch fork to throw the sheaf bag over a cross bar above them. Throwers are allowed three attempts at each successive height. When the thrower has missed three attempts at any one height they are eliminated from advancing any higher in the competition.
