    I believe we call it a discus toss.

    Oooh, I think shot put is more appropriate.:thumbsup:

    The object is actually round, a ball. Whereas in the discus toss, it is actually in disc form.

    I also believe they are thrown in different ways, too.

    Exactly Venus, in athletics, a discus is a round flat-like device, about 25 cm diameter. And the shot put is a metal ball about 15 cm diameter, a big ball-bearing ball!, does that sound correct?

    Plus, the shoput is sort of push-thrown maneuver with a 180 degree athlet's spin for momentum, on the other hand, the discus is spin-thrown wich involves some 720 degrees athlet's spin or so.
