American Ryan Crouser Breaks World Indoor Shot Put Record
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.: Olympic champion Ryan Crouser broke the world indoor shot put record at an American Track League meet in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Sunday.
Crouser tossed the shot put 22.82 meters (74 feet, 10 inches) on his first attempt to break the mark of 22.66 (74-4) set by Randy Barnes on Jan. 20, 1989. Crouser's record is pending ratification.
The 28-year-old Crousers heave went so far that it nearly landed out of the area designed for the competition. He also had another toss that went 22.70 meters (74-5).
Its a pretty good start to 2021, Crouser said on ESPN. I feel like there is more there.
