The Shoe Addicts present: Men's Shot Put, London2017 WC Presser


Thre real test of a champion is when, under much duress, you produce. That is what Tom Walsh did in the men's shot put. He kept his cool, under much pressure and won the gold medal, with a throw of 22.03 meters. Joe Kovacs tried, but did not overtake Walsh, with Kovac's best at 21.66 meters. . Stipe Zunic, from Croatia, threw 21.44 meters, for the bronze. Stipe started out as a javelin thrower, and his move to the shot put rewarded him with his first global medal!
