Illustrated Javelin Throwing Technique

By

2 of 7

Grip
The javelin should be held horizontally, in the palm of your hand. There are three different grip styles: 1. American Style (grip the cord between the thumb and index finger); 2. Finnish Style (Grip the cord between the thumb and middle finger); 3. Fork Style (Grip the cord between the index and middle fingers). Whichever style you choose, the javelin will always rest in your palm, with your palm facing up.
