Success in the throws depends on the consistent performance of skills and techniques. Some of the skills required for throwing may seem unnatural at first. The summation of all forces leading up to the release of the implement directly affects the throw. Although the throwing events are similar in some aspects, the movements that lead up to the release may vary.

The shot put consists of three movements: the glide or rotation, the standing power position, and the release. Movements involved in the hammer and discus include body rotation within the boundaries of a ring and rely on centripetal forces and torque, culminating with a release. Unlike the hammer and discus, the javelin requires the athlete to build speed over a linear distance. A successful throw in any of these four events requires the transfer of explosive strength and maximal muscular force onto the object in the shortest possible time.

The importance of muscular strength drives the requirement for throwers to develop leg strength in the early stages of their careers. Strength is so important for a thrower that it often becomes a limiting factor in technique development. Weaker athletes simply cannot develop and refine technique as quickly or effectively as stronger throwers can.

The article cited below documents:

  • CONSISTENT IMPLEMENT ACCELERATION
  • SUMMATION OF FORCE
  • LENGTHENING THE PATH OF IMPLEMENT ACCELERATION
  • SEPARATION AND TORQUE
  • POSTURE

Hope this helps, prashantakerkar

Thanks.

Are there left handed discus throwers who have won gold medals in the Olympic games?

If yes, Can we have images from Google search engine who are left handed gold medal winners
at the Olympic games?

Note: The above images are of Right handed discus throwers.

Thanks.

In case no, What could be the reasons?

As we know Right handed people are more than Left handed people in the world.

But there is no discus thrower in the Olympics games who is left handed but has not won any gold medal?

Thank you.

Looks like there are no left handed discus throwers who have won gold medals in the Olympic games.

What are the different reasons?

There are left-handed discus throwers. From above, it would look like they're spinning anticlockwise. There are videos online showing the discus thrown by a lefty.
