Hosted by Greater Philadelphia Track Club - Sanctioned by USA Track & Field

Each thrower will compete in the shot put, discus, and javelin to determine the best all-around thrower. There will be two flights,

with a maximum of 16 throwers per flight. Flights will be determined based on recent performance – not by gender or age. Four throws per implement (bring your own implements). Implements will be weighed before competition to ensure proper specifications for your age and gender. The order of events for one flight will be Shot Put-Discus-Javelin, while, due to time constraints, the other flight’s order will be Discus-Javelin-Shot Put. If you have a preference of flight, we will try to accommodate you. There is no requirement that you must do all three throwing events, but you will have more fun if you do! Open to all throwers 14-and-older. Distances will be measured by tape (metric), and the competition will be officiated by certified USA Track & Field officials. Due to the unique format of this meet, the Philadelphia Throws Triathlon can accommodate only 32 throwers. Any questions

contact Ray Feick at rayfeick@dejazzd.com or 610-754-6007.

SCORING: Age-Graded Scoring. Scores will be based on your present age – not by five-year age brackets. The World Masters Association’s 2006 age/gender-graded tables measure how close an athlete comes to the world standard for their age and gender. Points are tabulated for each event (the age/gender-graded percentage of your best throw), and awards are based on the cumulative percentages for the three events. For example: An age/gender-graded percentage of 60% for your best throw in

each of the three events = a total score of 180 points. This meet presents a rare opportunity for men and women, young and old,

to compete directly against each other “on a level playing field”. For a complete explanation of age-grading, along with an age-graded calculator useful for strategy and training purposes, visit: www.samastersathletics.org.au/Age_graded_tables.pdf .
FACILITY: Larry Wilson Stadium – Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School (1345 Sumneytown Pike Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437). Javelin thrown from rubberized surface (same surface as track). Short spikes only (¼ʺ max). Discus and Shot Put thrown from concrete surfaces. Directions: Go to www.gmahs.org, click on “About GMA”, then “MAP AND DIRECTIONS”. When you enter

the main entrance to Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School off Sumneytown Pike, please park in the lot immediately on your left.

From the intersection of Rhododendron Drive & Gwynedd-Mercy Drive near the front of the high school, walk down Rhododendron

Drive approximately 300 yds. to the stadium. No athletes’ cars are allowed on stadium grounds.

AWARDS: Champion’s Trophy to the best all-around thrower, cash awards to the first four athletes ($100, $75, $50, $25),

and award certificates to the top fifteen. Athletes with college eligibility will be ineligible for cash prizes. Because of the

unique age&gender-graded scoring, there will be no age group or gender categories. The overall places from the total score of

each athlete will determine the award winners. Awards Ceremony will follow the meet.
