    Special Rules: While you don't have to qualify for your distance to count, use of the Hammer Throw Glitch will result in an automatic disqualification.

    [The Hammer Throw Glitch is where you keep your power level under the P and when you have to release, you allow the hammer to be flung at 80 Degrees which causes it to go a foot or Two, but register as 92.04 Meters.]

    Hello Twin Galaxies.

    Nintendo Entertainment System, NTSC, Track and Field II, Hammer Throw, Distance 83.04.

    Record attempt starts approximately 4:50 in the video.

    This is a distance I have been chasing for a while. Many attempts and a few callused blisters lead to this video and hopefully all is in order. Finally......its on video.

    A special thanks to my brother.

    Accept! Having achieved this throw myself, it definitely took a number of attempts to get it. Nice work!

    Odd thing is, I'm pretty sure I have actually passed this "max-out" once without the short throw glitch by throwing it exactly at the edge (barely out of range of disqualification). This could have been a graphical glitch in the score, but I'm fairly sure I did reach a mark higher than 83.04m. I once also had a score of 28,301 in skeet shooting for the original track and field NES... Yeah, I don't know how that score makes sense if you know the event.

    Anyway, there is still hope to push this even further (potentially).
    I like to destroy games... especially the ones with Mario in them.

    Thanks Andrew. I saw that you also threw this distance and was looking forward to hearing what you thought. If it is possible to throw it farther I certainly have not done it. I have only thrown 83.04 one other time. I was working on that "perfect" angle when it happened and was so distracted by the distance that I missed the throw angle. Luckily my brother caught it or I would most likely still be looking for that magical 57 degrees.

    Thank you everyone for the responses. Its always fun to hear what the community has to say.

    I'm still surprised there's no TAS for this game. I'm tempted to make one to know the limits of the game. :)
