A shining sports-star, an upcoming athlete from Barkur established a great name in Javelin Throw…!
Javelin is a sharp tipped, light weight throwing spear with a long stick, which is used in sorting events. Historically these sorts of javelins were used as weapons for hunting and in warfare. In modern world, it’s now restricted to be a sport event from Olympics to Taluk Level athletic meets.
A javelin throw is a track and field event, where this javelin or almost 2.5 meter stick with sharp point is thrown….the sportsmen or woman gets the momentum by running on a predetermined area…. and distance will be measured and the winner will be decided. In sports language javelin throw is an event in both men’s decathlon and women’s heptathlon.
Proper technique requires the athlete to hold the javelin with only one hand on the cord grip. Gloves aren't allowed, and tape on the fingers is permitted only if it’s to cover an open wound. The rules do, however, allow athletes to chalk their hands. The javelin must be thrown with an over-the-shoulder motion. The competitor can't turn his back to the throwing area until the javelin is airborne.
Why all these explanations, yes here is a Barkurian young athlete, ‘Karishma S. Sanil’, who achieved a lot at this young age and brought laurels to the family and to the place where she born and brought up…. and since Primary and High School days she boldly and successfully represented in District, state and now selected in National level in this rare field as a Javelin thrower.
