      I doubt it. What was your throwing weight?

        How much did John Hubbell weigh? My memory is that he was a little, quick guy.

          For those un-imperial, 60 foot's approx 18.29m

          And 200lbs=90.7kgs

              Ladislav Pataki ?, 5'9 1/2 187 lb - 61'2 in 1971. Farthest by anyone
              under 200 may be Yosvani Obregon(Cuba) - 65' 1/2", in 2000, weighing 198.

              held by a 304-pounder! Who were they?

                I'm guessing he went about 225

                  I knew Pataki from his coaching credentials, but had no idea he had achieved such an athletic feat.

                  He's the late Dr. Pataki, unfortunately:

                    I remember him from Slovakia of the mid-to-late sixties. That he was an almost 19 m putter, I never knew.

                      Guessing Chuck Fonville, who broke Jack Torrance's WR.

                        A few other small putters -

                        Brdovcak Dubravko CRO 6'0/172 19.00/62'4" 2 Varazdin 28/7/07
                        Krzysztof Krzywosz POL 5'11/182 19.13/62'9" 2 Odense 4/8/07
                        Yohei Murakawa JPN 5'11/182 18.43/60'5 3/4" 2 Kobe 2/7/06

                        Other relatively small guys are Andrzej Mrozik POL 6'1/185 18.68/61'3 1/2" and Shon Yin 6'0/187 60'9"

                        the 172 does sound a bit implausible. Stats are from Norbert Heinrich's SP site.
