IAAF Hammer Throw Challenge

The IAAF Hammer Throw Challenge is an annual International Association of Athletics Federations. First held in 2010, the series of hammer throw competitions for men and women are primary held at meetings with IAAF World Challenge status. The rankings are decided by combining the total (in metres) of each athlete's three greatest throws at the permit events during the season. Further points can be gained by those who break or equal the world record mark for the event.[1]

The total prize money available is US$202,000, split evenly between male and female athletes. The male and female winners each receive $30,000, while second and third placed athletes are entitled to $20,000 and $14,000 respectively. Increasingly smaller prizes are given to the remaining throwers who rank in the top twelve.[1] The 2010 men's and women's competitions were won by Koji Murofushi and Betty Heidler, respectively.[2] The eleven meetings which had permit status in 2010 offered either a men's contest, a women's contest, or both – an arrangement which gave athletes of each sex a total of seven opportunities to score points for the challenge.[1]

Meetings

Roughly contiguous with the IAAF World Challenge circuit, a permit hammer throw event was held at all meetings with the exception of Melbourne Track Classic in March and the Meeting International Mohammed VI d'Athlétisme de Rabat in June.[3][4]
