International Implement Invitational (RI) Results

When the IAAF changed the implements used in international age group competitions, it created the need for meets where US athletes can actually compete with these implements. The 2014 International Hammer Implement Invitational in Rhode Island did just that. The following implements were used:

  • Boys born in 1997 or younger: 5-kilogram hammer;
  • Boys born in 1995 and 1996: 6-kilogram hammer; and
  • Boys born in 1994 or older: 7.26-kilogram hammer
  • Girls born in 1997 or younger: 3-kilogram hammer; and
  • Girls born in 1995 or older: 4-kilogram hammer.

Of course, athletes wishing to throw a heavier implement can also join the competitions for the older age groups and many did over the weekend.

# Although throw exceeded the meet record it can not be considered for a new meet record due to the fact that upon recertification of the implement after the throw the hammer was approximately three (3) millimeters too long. This appears to be due to a slightly elongated handle due to hits against the throwing cage.
