USA's Kovacs and Crouser both throw over 75' to go Gold and Silver in the Shot Put at 2019 World Championships

Posted

In an epic battle of the big men, it came down to three men throwing over 75' and being separated by less than 1/2" (1 cm).  The fireworks started in the first round and didn't finish until the final throw in round 6.  22.91m takes first, 22.90 takes second and third; and unbelievably 22.53m (73' 11") takes fourth!
