New UKA Throws Safety Guidance published

2 weeks ago By Kevin Aspindle

Guidance for training and competition throwing of Hammer & Discus – especially for left-handed throwers.

Following a recent incident where a hammer thrown from a well maintained cage, carried 6 lanes of a track and caused a minor injury to a spectating athlete; UK Athletics (UKA) has produced new guidance for the safe management of hammer and discus throwing. The guidance is applicable to both training and competition situations, and should be implemented immediately.
All Coaches & Officials will need to read the NEW throws safety guidance in detail and ensure that the guidance is followed for all future competitions involving throws events. You can download the guidance from the Club Policies in the Documents section of our website.
