Men's javelin in major championships (Nearly complete results) - updated 06 Sep 2012
Miesten keihäänheitto arvokisoissa (Melkein täydelliset tulokset)

In the pages of this website You can see the results of men's javelin throwing in major championships including olympic games, world championships
and European championships. When I opened this website in June 2002, my aim was to compile here the results, which are as complete as possible.
I was proceeding backwards towards old times and I reached Athens 1906 Games in February 2003. But many pages here are still incomplete;
especially as far as the throwing orders are concerned. For instance Tokyo 1964 and Rome 1960 throwing orders of finals are the most serious
shortages and the same you can say also about missing throwing series of Bern 1954. But please look around, because of information not easy to find
elsewhere. I have still updated (and shall update) my website anytime, I have got any additional information. I express my special thanks to
everybody, who has helped me. Without them this website would be far from what it is today.
