Who wins Women's Shot Put?
2019 World Championships in Athletics for Women: Shot Put
The shot, a spherical metal object (four kilogram for women), is put with one hand (its putting rather than throwing). The objective is to get it as far as one can from a 3.5ft radius circle that has a curved ten-cm high toe-board at the front.
A throw will only be legal, if the shot is not dropped below the participant’s shoulders line at any phase of the put and if it lands inside a classified 34.92° sector. The participant, meanwhile, must not touch the ends of the toe-board during their put or leave the circle before the shot has landed, and then only from the rear half of the circle.
Participants will commonly throw 4-or-6/competition. If there is a tie between athletes, the winner will be the athlete with the next-best score.
The Ancient Greeks threw stones as a sport; the origins of the modern version of the event can be traced to the Highland Games in Scotland during the nineteenth century where participants threw a spherical cube, or metal weight from behind a line.
The women’s shot put has been part of modern Olympics since 1948.
