In the Olympics, the javelin has turned into one of the most diverse events.
Recently, Olympic and world medalists have come from not only the traditional European powers, but also China, Egypt, Kenya, South Africa and Trinidad and Tobago.
Now, Game of Thrones has entered the mix. In the HBO series’ sixth episode of its seventh season that debuted Sunday night — titled “Beyond the Wall” — a battle scene takes place on a frozen lake.
The full scene comes at about the 54-minute mark of the episode on HBO’s site here.
In it, a character named the “Night King” kills a dragon with what appears to be an icy spear, perfectly launched in javelin-throw fashion.
