EUGENE (USA): Prefontaine Classic on May 26 as part of IAAF Diamond League will have a superb field in menÂ´s shot put. It will feature every medalist from the last three global championships with 2016 Olympic Champion and Oregon native Ryan Crouser and 2017 World Champion and 2018 World Indoor champion Tom Walsh. Ryan Crouser thrilled last year’s Pre Classic crowd with a Hayward Field record 22.43. Also in the competition 2015 World champion Joe Kovacs, former World champion David Storl, DL winner 2018 Darrell Hill. Bronze winner from Birmingham Tomas Stanek, PolandÂ´s Konrad Bukowiecki with Michal Haratyk and bronze winner from London 2017 Stipe Zunic of Croatia.
RunBlogRun opines: The Pre Classic is the meet where Nike athletes go to shine. In the heartland of Nike, the meet, held at Hayward Field is a celebration each year of all things athletics. The shot field will have everyone who is a key player in the shot put world. I always love the shot put in Hayward, and this one will be total throw geek!
