The discus, which weighs 2 kilograms and is 8'2.5" inches in diameter, has aerodynamic qualities.  Only three tries are allowed and the athlete, while turning 1 1/2 times, must stay within an 8'2.5" concrete circle. The discus must land within a 40-degree sector. Only the best throw counts in the scoring.
