March 10, 2006, Newsletter Issue #7: Great Grips

Tip of the Week

Grab it, but remember to let go! There are three grips a thrower can use in the javelin event. One of the things that beginning throwers think about when deciding how to hold the javelin is which grip will affect them the least, meaning force the javelin off course the least, at the point of release.

Some athletes feel they have better control with one grip rather than another. It is a personal preference and athletes should choose the grip, Finnish index finger above binding with second finger wrapped, Fork index and middle finger split at the top of the binding, or American four fingers on the binding, which they feel most comfortable with.
