    SincereSeeker6After trying at the beginning of my sessions on this game for a couple weeks, it finally popped after i tried for about an hour. Good tip is to lunge forward as you are doing it and lean tiny bit to the right. Keep your hands by your sides while lifting your feet, as before doing this I always released it when I didnt want to and got around 50M. After I began doing that and lunging forward I got it in about 30 minutes.

    Ok so I did this for hours last night and finally developed a strategy.

    Ok so what you are gonna want to do is run up fast with low knees(meaning keep you feet really close to the ground barely picking them up off the ground) this is because when you get to the throwing zone you want to have enough time to stop, lower your body, and throw. For me I would throw my arm at about the hight of my kinect sensor which is about 5.8ft off the ground. This should deffinitly give you the power you want in the throw.

    For me I am right handed but I used my left hand.(I think it is eaier with the left hand) So grab the javelin with your left hand and do what I said above but when you throw stop before so you arm would be like the image to the right letting the \ be your arm. \•

    Once you've developed the skills above. You should start to experiment different spots to stop at.for example...


    let the @ sign be where you stop at when you are throwing the javilin readjust until you get close. Now instead of an @ sign next to your tv you might have a lamp,dvds, spots on the wall, or anything that you can recognize to stay consistant with that shot.

    This method will hit the tv to the left

    I know I will get negatives but maybe you can use, or build a strategy off of my strategy and good luck to all of you.

    After many try's you will develop the throw be as consistent as possible when you find the area by the tv.

    ANY questions or anything that is confusing please ask me before just saying negitive because I will try my hardest to explain as detailed as possible.

    I will start by saying this is definitely one of the hardest achievements in the game. I found out that there are televisions and speakers in the back of the javelin section of the stadium. To get that far you need a minimum of 100 meters and some other equipment are even more, the equipment is in the left and the right side of the field. I also found out that aiming for any equipment out of bounds will not count. What I have found is that I would take a step when I throw, which would throw off the kinect sensor by me being so close. So you need to step back further than what you are used to, more like 8-9 feet, and don't take a step from that spot when you throw. Also you need a lot of distance and height to be able to do this so angle your arm at about 45 degrees and release the javelin with a lot of speed so you can get the power necessary. This one does take a while to hit the exact spot, but keep on aiming for it and you will get it. Good luck to all.

    LeiChatI threw 107 metres the other evening but sadly it landed dead centre, inside the shot put triangle. No achievement yet... :(

    FreshPrince513Yeah, that's gonna happen a lot, but that is normal.
