Discus

  1. All are fair throws
    • A single handed under arm throw.
    • A bowling action over the head.
    • A double handed throw.
  2. Each competitor is entitled to three throws, but they must not be consecutive.
  3. Competitor touches with any part of their body, the ground outside the circle or the top edge of the iron band, after they have stepped into the circle and begun to make a throw, it is a foul.
  4. The competitor must be in a stationary position in the circle before they throw.
  5. A competitor may leave the circle (from the rear part of the circle), if after coming to a stationary state, place the discus on the ground within the circle.
  6. The competitor must not leave the circle until the discus has landed.
  7. A competitor may enter the circle from any direction.
  8. A competitor leaving the circle in front of the centre line has fouled.
  9. The discus must land totally within the throwing sector to be fair. If the discus lands in part or the whole on or outside the sector tapes, it is a foul throw.
  10. If the discus hits the net/cage and falls within the sector lines, this would be a fair throw.
  11. The measurement is taken from the point nearest to the throwing circle where the discus first hit the ground, to the inside rim of the throwing circle.
  12. The throw is measured to the inside of the rim of the circle, and is recorded as the actual distance rounded down to the nearest whole centimetre (eg: if the throw is 16.115 metres it is recorded as 16.11 metres. If the throw is 16.12 metres it is recorded as 16.12 metres).
