Shot Put Sportshall Event

This athletics event is part of the Sportshall series designed for the indoor use of school age competitors. This is a brief outline of the event, for more details see official literature.

The Sportshall shot put event is very similar to the regular outdoor track and field Shot Put, though it has several modifications to suit juniors and indoor competition such as lighter and specially designed shots that do not damage indoor surfaces. Other throwing events are the chest push and soft javelin.
