You could call it one of the oldest disciplines

as the soldiers hurled their spears

deep into enemy territory

but instead of aiming for another army

your agile spear is aiming

for height and length

as it climbs through the air

to land on the field of play

hit the distance

and rewards come for those top spearmen

with Gold Silver and Bronze
