    The note in IAAF Rule 191 describing the team of officials includes
    (1) The Chief Judge will watch over the whole of the event.
    (2) Two Judges checking whether the throw has been made correctly and measuring the trial. One must be provided with two flags - white to indicate if the trial is valid and red if it is a failure.

    Would probably take a certain amount of artistry to set out the ring of plasticine around the rim!

    In an earlier post I suggested pressure sensors.

    Agreed. That seems workable. How is it done in tennis?

    The pressure sensor would have to be on top of ring.. it is legal to touch inside of ring..
    I don't understand one leg obscuring the other.. every meet I have ever worked at this level had a judge of both sides of ring..

    Not just that; they had a zillion cameras filming the throw from every angle and could have watched instant replay if they had doubts.
