  Discus throw - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The discus, the object to be thrown, is a lens-shaped heavy disc with a diameter of 220 mm (8.66 inches) and a weight of two kilograms (4 lb 7 oz) for the men's event, and one kg (2 lb 3 oz) for the women's, with a smaller diameter of 182 mm (7.17 inches).
The competitor's best throw from the allocated number of throws, typically between three and eight, is recorded, and the competitor who legally throws the discus the furthest is declared the winner.
As well as achieving maximum momentum in the discus on throwing, the discus's distance is also determined by the trajectory the thrower imparts, as well as the aerodynamic behaviour of the discus.

 Shot Put, Discus Throw - - by Marco Steybe
The distance achieved by the throw is a functioon of the implement's speed at release, the height of release, the angle of release and attack, and, in the discus, air resistance and the aerodynamic qualities of the implement.
In the Discus Throw, the thrower attempts to perform a long acceleration of the implement by applying rotational and linear horizontal force at the rear of the throwing circle.
The discus throw is actually a sling, aided by a stretch-reflex reaction prior to release.

The rhythm of the throw is slow to fast; the tempo of the throw is increased at this point.

This is done by considering the two sages of the throw - the launch (the movements in the circle) and the discus flight.
To ascertain the optimal release characteristics of the discus to maximize the distance thrown, the results of those studies which have addressed this problem by simulating the flight of the discus are evaluated.
Thus, the discus throwing technique is discussed in relation to the results of cinematographic data, and the extremely limited number of force platform and electromyographic studies.

 The importance of the right leg in discus throwing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
All coaches would probably agree that the discus technique used by all throwers today is aimed at achieving the greatest possible torque prior to the final release phase which will allow the thrower to maximally accelerate the implement and achieve the highest possible release speed.
Because the centre of gravity of the thrower plus discus system is not over the right foot in the centre of the circle, the thrower loses much of the rotational momentum that may have been created with the right leg in the first phases of the throw.
This leads to the further arguments that the best qualified coaches should coach beginners as well, and in the case of discus throwing and shot putting, the emphasis on (right) leg work is an aspect of the throw that should be particularly emphasised with throwers at all levels and consequently be taught to beginner coaches.
