Dis­cus throw­ing

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

The throw­ing of a heavy disc is one of mankind’s old­est sports, dat­ing back as far as 708 BC. The sport is alive and well to­day as ev­i­denced by Syd­ney’s An­drew MacLeod, who is shown here in the mid­dle of his pre-throw spin at the At­lantic Street track and field fa­cil­i­ties. MacLeod and other mem­bers of the Track and Field As­so­ci­a­tion of Cape Bre­ton (TFACB) can of­ten be found prac­tic­ing their tech­niques in a num­ber of dis­ci­plines, in­clud­ing dis­cus, shot put and javelin.
