The spirit of the American JavFest has always been to include competition at every age and ability level, plus some great teaching and educational opportunities. Elites in past JavFests have successful chased national and international standards as they sought to qualify for Team USA in Olympic, World and Pan-American competition. NSAF Project Javelin co-founder Jeff Gorski started the American JavFest many years ago and, thanks to Barry Krammes, Tom Pukstys and others, it continues today. The current version of the meet was launched in 2015.
The JavFest is the NSAF's stateside version of the great Pihtipudas Javelin Carnival in Finland, sharing the joys of the javelin with throwers of all ages. The unique event allows athletes, coaches and fans of the sport to be fully engaged educationally, socially and competitively.
Here are the FULL RESULTS for the 2021 American JavFest!
