Abstract

In hammer throw event, the distance of the hammer throw is mainly determined by hammer head resultant velocity at release. During turn phase, hammer head resultant velocity is increased gradually with four turns and is increased during double support phase. The purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of the motions in the lower torso, upper torso, upper limbs and hammer segment to the hammer head tangential velocity during double support phase.
