Ryan Whiting took second in the shot put at the 2014 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix. His throw of 21.18m, was second only to Joe Kovacs, who threw 21.25m. I caught up with Ryan Whiting just after his throw, as he waited to go on the USATF.tv wrap up show. Ryan is focused on one thing: making the team for SOPOT as he wants to defend his title from Istanbul. As his agent, Mark Wetmore will tell you, Ryan Whiting is getting ready for the BIG THROW.
