Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Clarissa Claretti (born 7 October 1980 in Fermo) is an Italian hammer thrower. Her personal best throw is 72.46 metres, achieved in July 2008 in Cagliari. The modern or Olympic hammer throw is an athletic throwing event where the object is to throw a heavy metal ball attached to a wire and handle. The name "hammer throw" is derived from older competitions where an actual sledge hammer was thrown. Such competitions are still part of the Scottish Highland Games, where the implement used is a steel or lead weight at the end of a cane handle.
