The purpose of this project is to provide biomechanical evaluation of throwing techniques to elite US discus throwers and javelin throwers. This is part of the High Performance program of USA Track & Field. We collect kinematic data for elite US athletes using three-dimensional videographic techniques, and compare their data to the data of world elite athletes, and suggest changes in throwing techniques to improve performance and prevent injury.
