            This must be a great year for shot as well as HJ. There is a soph from Oregon who just threw 67'.

              Ryan Crouser (Oregon high school sophomore) went 65' 10 1/4". He hasn't reached 67', yet. He's a big kid and I think he will go that far and more.

                Soph over 72' is incredible, and a southpaw at that, a real boon to those lefty shotput manufactures. I remember back to 1957 when Jim Smith of LB Poly became the first southpaw junior. to throw over 60'. Of course, the next year, 1958, Dallas Long obliterated the HS record by 5' when he threw 69' and later, still as a prep, threw the 16lb shot 61' which broke the NCAA record of 60' 6" set the same day by Dave Davis from USC.

                Here's a question.......Will Vena exceed Carters record? I predict he will do a Bookout.

                  What does it mean to "do a Bookout"? Does that mean he leveled off rather than continue to improve?

                    Yep. He's got 9 feet more to go to catch Carter. As well as get stronger, he must get faster and his form looks pretty good right now. Does anyone know how far he has thrown the 16lb shot. He should be well over 60'.

                    I really wonder if a distance around 80 feet is up against some rule of terminal velocity. Hell, Marlow could'nt reach 80' with a softball.

                        That's not a joke by the way. I can still put a 12# shot 40', but I can't put a softball 80'! The arm is not made to get great speed in a putting motion (mind you, it was the glide, not the spin).

                          Bookout was distracted by other sports. Does Vena do other sports?
