PHILADELPHIA (USA): “A gold medal, nothing less,” said reigning shot put World champion Joe Kovacs announcing his plan for Rio Olympics. “I probably am the favorite going into Rio, statistics-wise, and to hope for anything less is not the right mindset. There are so many good people in the U.S. men’s shot put, year in and year out, that to make the team, you have to expect to come back with a medal,” Joe added.
