Best Answer

Line fouls can occur when the thrower steps onto or over the line.

Sector fouls occur when the javelin does no land inside of the sector lines (on the line is a foul as well).

Fouls are also called for unsafe delivery technique including side arm throwing and rotational throwing. These fouls are called primarily for the safety of the athlete(s)

Fouls are called when a javelin does not land correctly - for a throw to be legal, the front tip of the javelin must land first.

If profanities, inappropriate gestures, or other unacceptable behaviors are displayed by the athlete, the official may call a foul and scratch a competitor's throw.
