    as a frosh, Wilkins was No. 8 on the yearly collegiate list

    the first time he ever had his picture in the magazine it was throwing the javelin

    This being a historical thread I think you need to go back to Bud Houser.

    Partially discussed here - John Godina may be your answer mSP/mDT combo.

    Randy Matson also a great discus thrower (and pretty good basketball player).

    For just shot-discus I'd go with O'Brien. In his lesser event he was ranked eight times, and once he was ranked first. We often see on this forum scoring tables for the sprint events. Who here has the data to compile the same for the throwing events?

    started a topic Versatile throwers

    Versatile throwers

    Which throwers have been the most versatile? Without looking it up, I am pretty sure Micheline Ostermeyer and Tamara Press have won Olympic gold in SP and DT, and Gerhard Stock medaled in SP and JT in 1936. Have there been others? And who was the best across all four events? I believe Mac Wilkins dabbled in HT and JT.
