Best Answer

In the Track and Field sport called the hammer throw, we use a hammer. It is a 16 pound ball (8.8 pounds for women) on a four-foot handle. It's simple - throw it as far as you can. Wikipedia has a article, and a link is provided. Oh, and in the sport of rock climbing, we use a hammer to drive in our pitons.
