The men's two handed javelin throw was a track and field athletics event held as part of the Athletics at the 1912 Summer Olympics programme. It was the only appearance of the event at the Olympics, along with the other two handed throws. The format of the event was such that each thrower threw the javelin three times with his right hand and three times with his left hand. The best distance with each hand was summed to give a total. The three finalists received three more throws with each hand.

Results[edit]

Saaristo, who had taken the silver medal in the one-handed event, won the two-handed event, leading a Finnish medal sweep. When the three Finnish throwers made the final, the three agreed to scratch the final and let the results stand, which Olympic officials accepted.
