So bad ass, flawless technique. I was a very mediocre shot putter in high school and there was a guy in our district that could spin and it looked like it was shot out of a cannon. He was regularly in the 62-65' range in high school, he was only about 235. We would go to practice and try to spin and our coach would just laugh at us because we had no idea that we weren't athletic enough to pull that off.

Two-time Olympic champion Ryan Crouser demolished his own shot put world record on Saturday, throwing for 23.56 meters at the Los Angeles Grand Prix.

The American surpassed his previous world record of 23.37 meters, which he achieved at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon in June 2021.

Crouser is the only man ever to throw further than 23.50 meters and he punched the air as he sent one ricocheting off the back barrier, reaching the record-breaking mark on his fourth attempt at the Continental Tour Gold event.

He put the field on notice with opening attempts of 23.23 and 23.31 meters, which would both count among the top six farthest attempts produced in the event.
