I am trying to achieve a simple throw effect in as3:

I put my finger on the screen and then swipe it as if I throw an object.
The goal is to simulate a ball movement according to the swipe (direction, speed)

What getsure should I use ?
I tried TransformGestureEvent.GESTURE_SWIPE
But this just give me the direction (left right, top, bottom) and no velocity or force or speed.

No at all : I have read it: this is totally the contrary of what I try to achieve: this SWIPE just gives me direction without any other indications.
