The discussion of the open left side has been interisting. Does anyone have a good video that they can post that demonstrates a good application of this?

Yup, that's the one. Must be a new Highland Games Event. My father is around 180 lbs, so I could only throw him a few feet. It would have to be onto recessed high jump mats I assume to minimize injury...
You kids and your crazy X-treme events!

Rumor has it they'll put special mats down in the javelin landing area and put suction cups on the tips of the javelins. They'll have to stick to be measured. It will make "point first" landings easier to call.

If they put mats down and suction cups on the tips of the javs then thats worse then moving it to another field, won't that just change the flight characteristics of the javelins and hinder their throws?

Quote from Shaun P.
Regarding the new infield at Hayward Field, I am certain that knowing Lance and Vin Lananna as I do, there is no way that there will ever be an artificial surface on the Infield at Hayward Field.
When I read Lance's post and look at the GoDucks website, I take it to mean that a "sand based turf field" is exactly that...a natural turf (grass) field with a sand underlay to help with the drainage, which my recollection of the Eugene climate deems to be very helpful.
The brand name "FieldTurf" is an artificial (plastic) surface which uses sand on top of the surface to allow a certain amount of movement when you plant your feet, more like real grass, so that it cuts down on the amount of serious knee and ankle injuries that used to occur on the original "AstroTurf" and related products. There are similar surfaces that use rubber granules or even water for the same effect.
Lance, I am interested to know what the effective distances are down the sector lines from the Hammer/Disc cage and Jav runup. Are there any limitations there? Also do you plan on having a single (concentric) circle for Hammer and Disc as the IAAF is recommending now, or will you have seperate discus and hammer circles within the single cage, with Hammer at the rear?
All new major stadiums, capable of holding major champs, are being built with concentric circles, ie the same surface for discus and hammer, which is causing a lot of discussion among throwers here, although lagely seems to have gone unnoticed. All recent Championships have used a single circle.
Good luck with the project, it looks great!

maybe i'm way off, but is what Connie Price-Smith did sort of an "open" glide with the left side like what we've been talking about? I have a video of her (I believe from macthrow) and it looks like thats what she's doing.

Univ. of Indianapolis is about a 5-10min. drive from IUPUI. Address:
1400 E. Hanna Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46227
* You can take either West st. or Meridian st. south from IUPUI. Take that to Hanna Ave. and head east. Go past Madison Ave. and University of Indianapolis will be on your left hand side. Go past the school and look for the football/Track facility(Ruth Lily fitness Center). Let me know if you have any questions? Hope this helps,
