Players throw as far as they can from behind a line. The distance from the throwing line to where the disc first hits the ground is measured. Players get five attempts per round and up to three rounds per day to try and get their longest throw. Measuring is done with a laser rangefinder to ensure accuracy and consistency. The current world record is 338 metres (men’s) and 173.3 metres (women’s)!
