Tomas WALSH - Shot put bronze at 2019 World Championships.

Tomas Walsh unleashes the finest opening put in a major contest. His best ever

distance and a new Oceana continental record 22.90 m (75 ft 1 1⁄2 in).

It was the longest throw in 29 years, making him the 4th. longest thrower in history.

His reward ?  A 3rd. place a bronze medal !  Ouch. It all went wrong in the last round.

2015 Champion Joe Kovacs squeezed past him with 22.91m and then Olympic Champion

Ryan Crouser reached 22.90m to equal Tomas (but has a better number two throw)

and thus stole the silver medal.

2019 World Championships. Doha, Qatar.
