{{#invoke:Hatnote|hatnote}} {{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} The discus throw (About this sound pronunciation) is a track and field event in which an athlete throws a heavy disc—called a discus—in an attempt to mark a farther distance than his or her competitors. It is an ancient sport, as demonstrated by the fifth-century-B.C. Myron statue, Discobolus. Although not part of the modern pentathlon, it was one of the events of the ancient Greek pentathlon, which can be dated back to at least to 708 BC.<ref>Notations on the 1920 discus stamps at the Olympic Museum</ref>
