Weight Throw Records

The Weight Throw is not an event officially recognised by the IAAF, although it was contested in the 1904 and 1920 Olympics and is featured in the Scottish Highland games.

The men start with a weight of 15.88kg. At age 50, the weight reduces to 11.34kg, then 9.08kg at age 60, 7.26kg at age 70 and 5.45kg at age 80. The women start with 9.08kg, go down to 7.26kg at age 50, 5.45kg at age 60 and 4kg at age 75.

The Weight Throw was introduced to World Masters as a separate event in 2005. Prior to that, it was only competed in as part of the throws pentathlon.

Where Centre records are better performances than National or World records, this likely indicates that the athlete either failed to apply for the record within the application window or was unable to meet the stricter paperwork requirements. More recent records could still be in the processing stage at World or National level.

Note: Athletes move. Wellington records applicable to athletes registered to Wellington at time of performance. Island championship records applicable to athletes registered to that island at time of performance. NZ records applicable to athletes registered appropriately to NZMA at time of performance. Oceania championship records applicable to athletes registered to OMA at time of performance. World records quote national affiliation of athlete at time of performance.
