The hammer throw is a competitive sport in which a metal ball, attached to a cable, is whirled round several times, then let go. The object is to see who can throw the hammer the furthest.
Usually kids under 12 do not compete since the weight of the shot put varies, but in middle school with a 8 pound shot put, a great throw would be 60 feet, so 55 feet would be a decent estimate for the furthest throw by someone younger than 12 years old.
