Game description

Shot Put is a discipline in athletics. The objective is to throw a ball as far as possible. However, before the throw the ball, they have to get some momentum by holding the ball with an outstretched arm and running a circle at the same time. The throw is only valid if the participant steps back after he let go of the ball. It is important that all other kids, who are watching are always behind the kid whose turn it is. In case you have no iron ball available for your Summer Olympics you can use a stone as well.


Measuring the distance. The kids can score points for the length of their throw.
