Avery Jenkins was telling me about some guy he met (I think he said in Finland) who used to be an Olympics competitor in the Javelin throw. Apparently, the guy has the same kind of throwing motion as for a javelin, and just rips the hell out of the disc. Sounds like fun, but I doubt most people could perform that kind of motion without great skill, training, and innate athletic ability.

I don't think he was ever good enough to be an Olympic level thrower, but Ville Piippo was a javelin thrower and from what I've seen on lcgm8's videos he can throw a low line drive forehand to at least 450' with barely an effort. It looks like a control shot when he does it on the videos.

EDIT: Like so.

its funny how ville seems to stumble after throwing, but if you look up javelin throws, everyone stumbles after throwing javelins

This is really good stuff, especially from 3min on about posture and alignment.
