Big Throw from a Big Guy Rio169
All Shot Put athletes are big, but Ryan Crouser (USA) adds height as well as girth to the equation. At 6.7" he could be playing basketball, but instead as gone into the family business. Crouser spun his way into a new Olympic Record of 73' 10 1/4", clearly enough for the Gold Medal as well. The Americans ended the night taking both Gold and Silver in the event.
