Women's World Records
As of 08/20/2019 Elissa Hapner has volunteered to take on the responsibility of record-keeping.
All records listed have been verified by Elissa in accordance with standard practices:
1) It is the responsibility of the Judge or Athletic Director to verify the record, and report it to Elissa. Reports from athletes will not be accepted without verification.
2) The Record must be set within all rules for that event.
3) The throw must be measured with a steel tape, and measurement witnessed by Judge and second witness (Athletic Director, another sanctioned Judge, Scorekeeper, but not the athlete or fellow competitor).
4) The implement will be weighed on a certified scale and the weight will be equal to or more than the legal weight for that implement. In the case of the Weights for Distance, the Weight for Height, and the Hammer Throw, the overall length of the implement will be measured and the length will be equal to or less than the legal length of that implement.
Please notify Elissa of any pending World record throws, or verified throws that are not listed here. You can also contact us and we will forward the information to Elissa.
