Here's a confession. I really enjoy all the athletic events but the throwers, how can you not admire them? Big Men and strong women who throw things! What is there not to like about that?

Well, Czech super thrower, Tomas Stanek is now a shot put deity. The dude has thrown over 22 meters inside and out. 22 meters indoors and out! Think about it!

Just earlier today, Tomas Stanek, threw a fantastic series of throws, in Madrid, the third stop on the 2018 IAAF World Indoor Tour, with a massive series: 21.57m, 21.98m and then, BOOM, Dyanmo Hum, and 22.17 meters.

Tomas Stanek has been on the world scene since 2013, and the 27 year old looks like he has a decade of good throws left in him.

I have been fortunate to watch many of the European throwers at various meets like Hengelo, and the last three European Indoor and Outdoor champs. The throws are featured in the European championships in some creative ways.

Here's a second instagram from Tomas Stanek:

The men's shot put should be a lot of fun in Birmingham to watch. Tomas Stanek should play a big part in that event with some guys from across the pond.

See you then!
