Discus Records

The discus has been contested in the Olympics since 1896 for men and 1928 women.

At the World Masters Athletics Champs, the event only became available to women from 1977.

The men start with a discus of 2kg, which drops to 1.5kg at age 50.It reduces further to 1kg at age 60. The women start with a 1kg discus that is reduced to 750g at age 75.

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.
