n. Perhaps the most arcane and archaic field event still contested at the Olympics and only marginally less silly than tug o'war or tossing the caber as a competition for grown ups.

To throw a frisbee overhand as if you were throwing a baseball. The thumb rests on the inside lip of the frisbee. You can reverse your grip and the throw then becomes the Hebrew Hammer.
