    Fun story. Competed against Crouser in High School, obviously leagues ahead everyone here. But at the 2011 Oregon State championship, due to a hamstring injury (I believe), he only threw from a power stance and still won both Disc and Shot Put with ease. It was amazing to see such raw talent. Great guy all around.

    UPDATE from 21/9/2023: Crouser has increased his WR to 23.57. There have only been 17 throws over 23.00m and Crouser has 13 of them. He has also thrown over 22m 240 times. I can't help wondering how he'd do in World's Strongest Man. Of course he's need to train for it but once he got some experience under his belt I think he'd do well, particularly in some of the more athletic events.

    I was a thrower in high school(2018) I looked up to Ryan Crouser and he pushed me to become a better thrower. Today he still holds the National HS discus record of 237'5" and a shot-put throw of 73'5". He threw both those throws in a SINGLE day(the video is on youtube somewhere). To put this in perspective how crazy this is. I only threw 160'+ and was top 10 in my state for 2018. Only a couple handful of kids throw 200'+ in the discus throw and 70'+ for shot-put in the WORLD. He will forever be the GOAT and his name widely is not known. He needs to throw discus next. I believe he could get the world record for sure.

    It really puts into perspective how many athletes around the world could have been the greatest ever or one of the greats if they had kept competing or even started in the first place. For example, Ronnie Coleman the greatest bodybuilder of all time said recently he didn’t take bodybuilding seriously until he won the Mr. Olympia in the late 90s. If he had taken it less seriously or never even started we wouldn’t have witnessed greatness on the world stage. It really does make you feel that anyone can do anything, if given enough time and work ethic.

    Unfortunately, there is a big difference in payout and recognition between winning gold and anything else in these sports that are not followed by millions or billions of people. They may have been happy at the time to witness such great competition, but there are real consequences for not attaining first place in the Olympics, and I can’t imagine shot put pays very well as an occupation outside of the Olympics and other high level competitions.

    I grew up surrounded by professional sportsmen (basketball,handball,table tennis,footbal) in high-school (Yugoslavia,Europe) and heard a lot of stories about different athletes. One was about our shot putting champion, at the time European champion Saračević who I saw in person after some local competition which was just part of his preparation for the Olympics. My handball friend who saw him train witnessed him dunking the basketball jumping from standing position and dude was HUGE. He was about 1,96-7 (6'6) and about 130kg (290 pounds). All athletes were unanimous that shot putters were the strongest humans without any doubt. Before people were arguing if weight lifters were stronger than gymnasts -- well shot putters beat them both,because they have the mass,strength and agility at unbelievable superhuman levels. Respect!

    Don't forget in the 2019 World Champs that Romani also bettered the Championship record and recorded one of the best throws in history, but was well off the pace. You have to feel for him and Walsh. Walsh put out the 22.90 in the first round and spent the entire competition trying to better that mark putting out some absolutely massive throws which ended up being fouls. He wasn't to know that he would end up losing on countback - instead, he was focused on trying to put the shot further than anyone and history. Huge kudos to the man for his brave tactics in the competition!

    Crouser’s freakishly athletic for such an enormous guy. Y’all should watch some of his jump training videos. His best standing long jump is almost 11’ & he’s got a 34” flat-footed vertical leap. That might not sound that impressive on its face but’s mostly because verts tend to be wildly exaggerated. Crouser (whose 6’7” tall barefoot) scores better in the flat-footed vert than Dwight Howard (6’9”) & Blake Griffin (6’8 1/2”) were able to manage at the NBA combine. I’m not suggesting that Crouser could dunk over a car like Blake did when he won the NBA dunk contest back when but his specific impulse is pretty much off the charts. He competes at about 310-320 pounds. The only way you could create a better body for a shot-putter would be if you made him a bit shorter without reducing his wis wingspan.

Then, all three of them broke the world record back to back on their last three lifts of the competition, with Ilya Ilyin tying the overall competition and winning by criteria (body weight). This is on that same level. It’s amazing what humans are producing in the area of athletic performance.

    One of the early strongman champions from the 1980s was two time winner Geoff capes. He was a bronze medalist in the Olympics in shot put before he began competing in strongman contests. He also was a highland games champion.. There were so many stories from the old strong men about just how athletic and freakish capes was. The only guy who ever really beat him from his own generation, was Bill kazmaier. Nobody ever really faced capes in his prime. I think that krauser would be a great strong man athlete today.

It's one of those sports you wouldn't expect a small country like New Zealand to produce Shot Putters but fortunately being a proud sporting country they have had good support at home which has grown the sport and participation.

I recruited some younger stronger guys and showed them the techniques i knew and they took it to next level destroyed my records and dominated against some of bigger schools and track and field events bringing medals home.

    I love this content and production. However, as playing a senior year h.s. all star game and throwing in districts with Joe Kovac breaking the PA discus all-time record. Briefly skimming over his 6' 295 frame. Which I happen to be exactly also . What he has done with that frame compared to 6'7 320lb is by far as impressive if not more than Crouser. It pretty much defies physics and he needs more credit for helping make Ryan what he is today.

    Im baffled… I threw shotput for 3 years in highschool, we were taught to use our legs, that the majority of the power comes from the push off from the legs, and technique but watching them, they’re barely using the energy from their legs, they’re using the spin, but the majority of their power is basically just throwing it with their arms. They barely hop up at the end of the spin
