I did 8.9m I think at VFW. Also an unoffical result above 10m, but the measuring was very suspicious...

as one of the people doing the measurement, i have to agree. Sorry for messing that one up. Maybe it was 10.60m, maybe not... Maybe there was a gust of wind which took it far...

AWESOME that there are all these new entries to the challenge :D

I bet it is really helpful if you understand french :) . Appearantly a mullet-hairdo and a moustache are essential for good shotputting.

Results are up, I hope to have a go this weekend :)

A bit of advice from the BBC:

My plan for the weekend - dodgy beard + bandana = shot put success :)

Weather has thwarted my efforts on the two times I've planned to put some shot, sorry :?

Hum, I'm quite sure I got 7,25 at VFW. Lost to baldy with just 5cm, we'll see how it goes next year (if we have an opportunity to shot put). :twisted:

Well, JP and bronco can almost snatch as much as the 48kg women in the olympics.

If you train something for 20 years daily you get really good at that. :wink:

With proper training and technique the biggest guys here could easily get 15m but what's the point when you can spend the same time training strongman events. :wink:
