Shot Put World Record Progression



I've always been intrigued by the shot put.  It's such a powerfully primal sport, yet requires so much finesse and technique.  You're basically heaving a heavy rock as far as you can whilst staying inside a small circle.  It's fantastic to see the shot put athletes in action.  This wonderfully done video shows the shot put world records throughout history ending in Randy Barnes' 75 ft 10 1/4 in shot put in 1990.
