Hammer Records

The hammer throw has its formal origins in the Scottish Highland games. It is one of the last events to recognise women at the Olympic level, having been contested since 1900 for men but not until 2000 for women.

At the World Masters Athletics Champs, the event only became available to women from 1987.

The weight of the hammer varies by age and gender. Men start with 7.26kg. They drop to 6kg at age 50, 5kg at age 60, 4kg at age 70 and 3kg at age 80. Women start with 4kg, drop to 3kg at age 50 and 2kg 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.
