  • American Women Throwers

    With Kara Winger's Brussels DL win today, American woman now top the yearly list for all four throwing events. Has this ever happened before?

      Since the women's hammer only made it four throwing events in late 1990s, probably not.

        Has it ever happened for American men ? Back in the Hal Connelly, Bud Held, Parry O'Brien, Al Oerter days ?

          Definitely historic year for American women's throws. With Winger's stunning AR and WL Friday, now the women's throws are led by Americans Winger, Allman, Ealey and Andersen. Two golds, a silver and a bronze in there, too. World No. 1 rankings? 2 or 3 out of 4, I'd think.

          When was the last time this occurred (4 U.S. women's world throws leaders in July or later)?

              That wasn't supposed to be "home" ... that was one of those things on this forum where if you put a hash tag in front of a "1", as in No. 1, it messes it up. I forget the details, but anyway, I edited it.

                    USA has never had world-leading marks in all four throws, neither for men nor women.

                    Bud Held and Connolly never overlapped, Held leading the JT in '55 and Connolly leading the HT in '56. Connolly also led in
                    '58 and '60 with Al Cantello leading the JT in '59, but again, no overlap.

                      Thanks DJ! I forgot about Cantello. Great info
