Abstract: The hammer throw is said to have its roots in Scotland and Ireland history. Folklore claims an Irish hero named Cuchulain whirled a chariot wheel with an axle attached to it around his head and released it as the first person to throw a hammer (Black, 1989; Dziepak, 1998). The modern hammer throw first appeared in the 1900 Olympics for men, but Women s hammer throw was not introduced to the sporting world until 1995. Women s hammer throw was finally included in the World Track and Field Championships in 1999 and the Olympics in 2000. For the execution of hammer throw there are numerous factors, which are responsible for performance of hammer thrower, physique and body composition, including the size, shape, form and physical fitness level to play a significant role in this regard. Efficient technique and other motor qualities like strength, speed (power), co-ordination, flexibility and mobility, the suppleness, skill, training, motivation and emotional level and on various other factors of physiological and biochemical nature. Kinanthropometry is a scientific specialization dealing with the measurement of persons in a variety of morphological perspectives, its application to movement and those factors which influence movement, including: components of body build, body measurements, proportions, composition, shape and maturation; motor abilities and cardio respiratory capacities; physical activity including recreational activity as well as highly specialized sports performance. In hammer throw event physical fitness level play a significant role in this regard. Efficient technique and other motor qualities like strength, speed (power), co-ordination, flexibility and mobility, the suppleness, skill, training, motivation and emotional level and on various other factors of physiological and biochemical nature. The speed is built up in progression to achieve it to the maximum degree towards the third turn to transmit release velocity of 26 to 27 m/sec to the hammer.
