Any points for beauty is better than brains debate?

Beauty is in no way better than brains. Cause, guess what? Beauty fades. You're dream job as a model or a porn star or whatever can only last so long. When you get into your forties, you'll be forced to retire because your beautiful, youthful looks have long since dried up. And guess what you'll be left with? 40-60 years of retirement. That's right. half a lifetime wasted because you couldn't go to college and get a real job.

Can you wear a glove to throw the discus?

no. The NCAA allows individually taped fingers though, but I believe they need to be covering a cut to be ok. Tape anywhere on the hand is not allowed under US HS rules. On the wrist is fine though.

What is the average throwing distance for a high school girls discus throw?

Answer

According to Track and Field News, the American high school record in the girls discus is 188 feet 4 inches (57.4 meters). I do not claim to be a track coach but my guess would be that an average throw would be in the 150-160 foot range.

from my experience: 1. depends on the throwers experience 2.level such as varsity or junior varsity 3. in my area average is between 90-110 feet.

Answer

Well I'm a boy and I'm 12 years old and I throw 25.72m [approx 84 feet] so a high school girl probably 35-45m

[Weights of the discus?? What weight was your discus?]

Answer

As an experienced physical educator, may I suggest the the answer to the throwing events lies in the weight of the impliment referenced. Of even more consequence is the meaning of the word "average".

The average high school girl is not the school's representative in the event.

From my experience, a classroom of 15 or 16 year-old girls throwing [say] a .75kg discus could throw anywhere between 20 feet and 45 or 50 feet. That is assuming the school's age-level representative is not among them.

How do you throw the discus?

you should ask a coach for an example
There are six keys movements of the discus throw: wind up, move in rhythm, balance, right leg engine, orbit, and delivery. The wind up is important aspects of the throw, because its set the tone for the entire throw. The wind up is both mental and technical. It is mental because the wind up sets you up for the rest of the throw. The following are the technical aspects: flat right foot, on the ball of your left foot, keep your weight evenly distributed between your feet, and do not over do it (being overly active can result in the waste of energy). Although the wind up sets the tone for the entire throw, the rhythm of the throw is the most important aspect. It is necessary to move in rhythm through out the entire throw. The best throwers contain the same amount of time in each phase while completing a great throw. Focusing on rhythm can bring about the consistency to get in the right positions that many throwers lack. To execute a sound discus throw with solid technique,it requires perfect balance. Due to the throw being a linear movement, combined with a one and a half rotation, and an implement at the end of one arm, a good discus thrower needs to maintain balance within the circle.
