AMA Winter Throws Championships 2023
AMA Winter Throws Championships 30th September – 2nd October 2023
QSAC – Kessels Road, Mount Gravatt QLD 4111
AMA Heavy Weight Pentathlon Championship is to be held in Brisbane
If you have attended a previous AMA Winter Throws Competitions you will know that individual medals for events are not presented. This is because the official AMA Championships for shot, discus, hammer, javelin, weight and the throws pentathlon are conducted at the AMA Track and Field Championships held early in the year.
In 2023 this was in Sydney and in 2024 Hobart. But there has not been an official AMA Championship for the Heavy Weight Pentathlon. This will change in Brisbane at the Winter Throws.
On Monday 2nd October the first official AMA Heavy Weight Pentathlon Championship will be conducted and AMA Medals will be presented to the place-getters. This will be a bonus for the participants at the Winter Throws.
Entries have now opened online and the website is below.
A Social Function will be held at the track (upstairs room within the grandstand) on Saturday afternoon on the completion of the competition. This is at a subsidised cost to athletes to encourage all to attend. Food is included but attendees will need to buy their own drinks.

This year QMA has joined forces with Team Elite to provide a range of merchandise including shirts, singlets and caps. Team Elite provided the merchandise when the AMA Championships were held in Brisbane in 2022. The merchandise website is below. Have a look as there are some great colours.
Queensland Masters Athletics would love to have you participate, either as an entrant or as one of the many volunteer helpers needed. The great thing about the Winter Throws is that it is all about participation and enjoying the camaraderie of the event.
