The discus throw is an event in track and field competition, in which an athlete throws a heavy disc — itself called a discus — in an attempt to mark a farther distance than his or her competitors. It is an ancient sport, as evidenced by the 5th century BC Myron statue, Discobolus. Although not part of the modern pentathlon, it was one of the events of the ancient pentathlon, which can be dated at least back to 708 BC.A routine part of most modern track and field meets at all levels, it is a sport which is particularly iconic of the Olympic Games.
