Javelin Betting

One of the most popular field events at the Olympics is the javelin , for the British this arises from past successes which always adds focus and interest in the sport. Both women and men compete in the event, although the weight of the javelin for each is different. In international competition the men€™s javelin is between 2.6 and 2.7 metres long and weighs a minimum of 800g, whereas the women€™s javelin is between 2.2 and 2.3 metres long and weighs in at a minimum of 600g.

Britain€™s Tessa Sanderson won Gold in 1984 and whilst a major player and a world record holder Steve Backley frustratingly could only win Olympic Silver in 1996 and 2000.
