Just a little light tossing

Published Aug. 31, 2005

While at the park on Davis Islands in Tampa on Sunday afternoon, Kyle Pennington, 39, of Tampa practices the light toss, which involves throwing a 28-pound weight as far as you can with one hand. Pennington was practicing various events, including heavy toss (for distance), hammer throw and the stone throw (similar to the shot putt) while getting ready for the Highland Games in Dunedin in April. Pennington took a year off from the competition, but decided to get back in shape for the games this year.
