Abstract
This study was conducted to investigate Zheng Wang's hammer throw technique via motion analysis using the video of the 2017 on the National Athletics Grand Prix (Zhengzhou, China). Anita Wlodarczyk, the hammer throw champion in London Championships, was took as the other subject. This study explored the technical commonness of the elite athletes of the women's hammer, and provides the theoretical basis for improving the accuracy and stability of the technique. The results show that Zheng Wang should shorten the total length of rotation to obtain the faster initial speed and control the angle of rotation of the hammer, to make each turn hammer velocity and acceleration increases maintain a rhythmic rise and reasonable single and double stance phase.
