from IAAF: 

Crouser climbs world all-time list

It wasn’t just the middle-distance runners making an impact on the world indoor all-time lists.

Olympic shot put champion Ryan Crouser opened his 2019 campaign with a stunning series of throws, all of them beyond 21.30m. He opened his account with 21.60m and produced his best mark of the night, 22.33m, in the fourth round.

Not only was it the best indoor throw for 11 years, it added 21 centimetres to the 30-year-old meeting record and moved Crouser from 18th to fourth on the world indoor all-time list.

US compatriot Joe Kovacs, the 2015 world champion, was second with a season’s best of 20.86m.
