The Men's Javelin throw event at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Daegu Stadium on September 1 & 3.

Preliminary leader Guillermo Martínez made his best throw in the first round, followed shortly by Matthias de Zordo's 86.27 winner. Meanwhile favorite world leader Andreas Thorkildsen languished in as low as eighth place, barely the last qualifier for his remaining three throws. All of the competitors had previously thrown far enough to displace Thorkildsen in the preliminary round. On his fourth throw he finally put one good throw together to leapfrog into the silver medal position. de Zordo was ranked fourth and Martínez had only been ranked twelfth on the annual list prior to the competition.
