Hammer Throw Betting

There are several throwing events to interest sporting and betting enthusiasts alike during the Olympics, with the hammer throw an exciting part of the games. The throw is derived from older throwing events, with athletes throwing a heavy metal ball, which is attached to a wire and a handle, as far as they can. The winner is the person who throws it the furthest, with the men's hammer weighing in at 16 pounds and measuring 121.5cm in length, while the women's hammer is 8.82 pounds and 119.5cm.
