Old Shot Put Picture

Here is a picture of my dad throwing the shot put late in his career in 1981. The meet was the EU Cup held in Belgrade on June 6 of that year. My dad got second in this meet, losing to then 19 year old Alessandro Andrei. Andrei as most of us know went on to win and olympic gold medal in 84 and broke the WR throwing over 75' in the shot. I thought this was also a great picture of a good position to have at the "finish" portion of the throw.

  1. Nice picture. Really captures the dyanamic power position just prior to release. You can see the power producing angles in the lower boady and the torque in the upper body.
