Best Answer

Initial javelins were made of wood until the mid-1950's.

Dick Held improved javelin aerodynamics and durability by introducing aluminum javelins around that time (his brother, Bud, was the world-record holder for a time). Current javelins are made of steel, aluminum and/or carbon fiber.
