The men’s shot put in Doha was one of the most exciting sporting events that I have witnessed. Five athlete went over the distance of the former World Championships.
Ryan Crouser lead early on with a 22.35m. Then, Tomas Walsh put the shot out to 22.90m, the 4th best throw ever!
With only 4 throws to go! Joe Kovacs throws 22.91m! Equal third best throw! One centimeter over Tomas Walsh.
Romani finishes 4th with 22.53m. Then, Crouser goes 22.90m! Amazing! No one had gone over 22.80m since 1990!
Kovacs takes gold, adds to his silver in 2017, gold in 2015, and silver in 2016 Rio.
What makes this presser special? The thrr medalist speak about the nature of competition. It is amazing!
