Precision Javelin at the Paralympic Games

The precision javelin throw was an event as part of athletics at the Paralympics six times (1960, 1968-76, 1984 and 1988). It is no longer part of the Paralympics, and does not seem to be a regular part of para athletics events anymore.

The event involved throwing a javelin towards a target of concentric circles on the ground.
