I have heard this word used, and I think it can mean the throw, but I do not see this definition in dictionaries. Am I wrong in my interpretation?
Me ayuda si corrige mis errores. Gracias.

"Aventar" means to throw, when you propel something through the air or make it fall.
- Aventé una moneda a la fuente.
- Al candidato le aventaron tomates y huevos cuando llegó.
- Me voy a aventar en paracaídas.

But as far as I know, there is no noun derived from it, so we use specific words, depending on the context.
- El lanzamiento del nuevo telescopio fue todo un éxito.
- El tiro con arco es un deporte de los Juegos Olímpicos.
Ain't it wonderful to be alive when the Rock'n'Roll plays...
