Accurate Hold:-

Gripping the javelin in the correct manner is an important aspect which should be thoroughly taken care of. Make sure that you grip the javelin and maintain the javelin weight securely and comfortably with the palm turned upwards for the grip.

Well Poised Run:-

The javelin throwers are allowed to run on a short strip to build up speed and force to throw the javelin at a greater pace. The thrower needs to hold the javelin horizontally with elbow well above the shoulder. One should begin the run with the non-dominant foot i.e. a right handed thrower should start the run with the left foot and vice-versa. Focused Throw:-

The most important aspect in a javelin throw is the setup and the throw itself. At the release point, the javelin is thrown over the foot which is not dominant. The throwing hand has to be as high as possible precisely at release point. Constant practice and focus is but obviously required.
