Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
A long opening throw can often destroy the opposition and when the favourite, Gatsioudis, began with 89.18 it looked as though Greece could celebrate a men’s as well as women’s javelin champion. Far behind, Parviainen moved into second at the start of round 2, to be quickly replaced by Fagernes with a Norwegian record of 86.24, but later in the round Železný continued a brilliant comeback by overtaking everyone but Gatsioudis with 87.67. That’s how it remained until, in the fifth round, Parviainen came up with a throw which thrust him into the heavily populated ranks of Finnish javelin greats. Second to Železný on the all-time list, with 93.09 in 1999, but lacking any medals since winning the 1992 world junior title, he hurled the spear 89.52 to become the eleventh Finn to capture a world or Olympic javelin crown! In eighth place Backley, hampered by a knee injury, ended a fiveyear sequence of winning a medal in every major championship, while defending champion Corbett failed to reach the final.
 These are the official results of the Men's Javelin Throw event at the 1999 World Championships in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 40 participating athletes, with the final held on Sunday 29 August 1999.

Men Javelin Throw Qualification Rounds

Greece's Costas Gatsioudis made the longest throw achieved in both groups, with 87,97. The Finn Matti Narhi was second in group B, behind the Greek, with 85,05. In group A the world record holder Jan Zelezny (CZE) was the only thrower to achieve the qualification standard of 83,50. He threw 84,31. The great surprise of this group was the non-qualification of the defending world champion Marius Corbett (RSA). He came to Sevilla with a '99 performance of 87,17 but threw 76,34 and was very far from the qualification. Only three athletes made the standard. Among the other nine quealifiers one should remark the Briton Steve Backley, current European champion, who threw 81,68, the Germans Boris Henry (83,35) and Raymond Hecht (83,41), and the Finns Aki Parviainen (82,84) and Harri Haatainen (81,83).
