Thank you for your reply Fu-Kwun,
Here is a link to a series of animated photo's of the farthest throw ever thrown. The throw was over 104 meters and an East German by the name of Uwe Hohn threw it.
There is a very good paper written on the physics of javelin throwing located here:
The author states in it that "The javelin is not so much a throw as a long pull" this is his analysis but other techniques challenge
this statement. The world record holder of the current javelin, Jan Zelezny, has a best toss of 98 meters. He also has the shortest
pull of the current crop of throwers but he stops his momentum the best. The number one factor of distance in the javelin is
speed of javelin at the release. Jan has hit upwards of 33 meters per second in this factor.
The author of the web page also has a windows application for download that simulates many different factors on the javelin thrown
today and this javelin page and application can be found here:
There is a very clear and well graphed paper of the 11th World championships located here:
The simulation that I would like to see is how much force can be created on the javelin by stopping your momentum quickly. In this
event, all throwers try to relax their arms and use the reaction to the stop as the main power for the javelin, if they anticipate the
stop and try to use their arm, it results in slowing the javelin down. This may not sound correct for someone who has never thrown
but the arm just cant move faster then the reaction force on the javelin when a thrower stops.
Thank you agin Fu-Kwun for considering this simulation.
