The javelin competition used the two-round format, in which the divided final was introduced in 1936. Accordingly, the qualifying round provides each competitor 3 throws to achieve a qualifying distance, which is 83.50 metres.

The final provides each thrower players with 3 throws and the top 8 throwers receive an additional 3 throws for a total of six. The best throw would be counted.
