Don’t tell Curtis Thompson, Chris and Nick Mirabelli and Cade Antonucci you can’t throw the new javelin far!!! It’s the all-time S.J. NEW javelin top-50 list!!!

The new javelin has been in use for 17 years now, and only nine South Jersey throwers have reached 200 feet during that span and only another 11 have hit 190 feet.

Compare that to the old javelin list, which we posted yesterday. Obviously the old javelin was in use much longer, from the dawn of New Jersey track in the 1930s through 2002. But 31 South Jersey throwers hit 210 feet or farther with the old implement.

The 50th spot on the old-jav list is 202-8. The 50th spot on the new-jav list is 182-11. So it’s a very different event this days.

The new javelin weighs the same as the old javelin – about two pounds. The changes were minor. The center of gravity was moved forward just a few inches and the tail is flattened out a bit. But the new javs look the same and throwers will tell you they feel the same. They just come down to Earth about 10 percent faster.

Which tells you how remarkable guys like Nick and Chris Mirabelli, Curtis Thompson and Cade Antonucci are. They were all among the top-20 American javelin throwers in 2019 — Thompson was No. 3 — and will all be among the best in the country when competition begins again.
