The 10m high cage with four support poles and high wind rating has made a big improvement to councils and athletics club throwing facilities.

The world-class championships, supported by the State government through Tourism WA, is set to be the biggest event on WA’s 2016 calendar with more than 4,000 athletes and 3,000 supporters.
