How Far Should I Expect to Throw?
Question from Karen:
How far should a women’s grandmaster be able to throw? I took a lesson from a male pro, who thought I should easily be able to throw 200 ft, and was disappointed that I didn’t get there during the lesson. I noticed that during worlds, the long distance drive for a women’s grandmaster was 189 ft. It seems like unless the conditions for the contest were really extreme, then someone who’s nonathletic probably shouldn’t expect to throw that far. So, from your experience, what should I expect?
