Attracting few adepts, this discipline is based on an old Irish tradition. In the 19th century, the Irish used to throw cart axles.It has always been a strongman's sport.These days, the thrower takes up his position inside a cage that opens out onto the field.He swings the hammer round on the end of a cable with a grip. He has three goes to throw the hammer as far as possible.American Flanagan at the turn of the century, Irishman O'Callaghan in the thirties and Russian Seykh in the late 70s were all double Olympic champions in the discipline.
