Field Event Implements and Implementation Inspection

Two competition-approved implements of every size and weight will be provided.  However, it is recommended that you bring your own implement and have it certified at the Implement Inspection area.  The Implement Inspection area will be located at the north end of the main grandstand, near the restrooms.

Athletes wishing to use their own implements must submit those implements at least two hours before the scheduled start of their throwing event.  If an implement is being used in both the pentathlon and a regular event, please pick it up following the pentathlon and resubmit it before the regular event.  If you don’t, it will not be available for use at the regular event.

Implement Inspection will be open as follows (subject to change based on final schedule):

  • Wednesday, July 16                  4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 17                      6:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Friday, July 18                           6:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 19                      6:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 20                         6:30 a.m. – noon
 

All implements should be checked in at least two hours prior to the start of your event.

Implements for all early morning throws (8:00 – 10:00 a.m.) should be checked in the evening before the event.
