  1. I’m a javelin thrower in the US. I was curious if you could take a look at a few of my throws and tell me what the distance some of my throws would have been if thrown with optimal angle of attack.

    Here is a throw from the past Olympic trials where you can get a good look at my angle of attack.

    It looks like I threw it with somewhere between a 50-65degree angle of attack. The throw went 242 feet.

    Thank you and I look forward to your feedback.
