Kovacs shifts gears to produce world-leading shot!
From IAAF - Joe Kovacs flipped the switch and the ball went flying. The IAAF World Championships Beijing 2015 men’s shot put gold medallist uncorked a world-leading 22.13m on his final attempt to close out a dominant performance at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Eugene on Friday (27). After coming out with what he described as a cautious first attempt, the American putter improved every round throughout a chilly evening at the Prefontaine Classic, becoming the first man over 22 metres this year. “It’s the body waiting to have that little gear change. I didn’t do it in the first couple throws but I could feel the rhythm and excitement coming,” commented Kovacs. In his third round attempt, he broke the 21-metre mark and, after that, he was never seriously challenged. New Zealand’s Tom Walsh finished second with 20.84m. After this meet, Kovacs now has the four best throws in the world this year but he sees much more improvement ahead of him. “I’m probably in better shape than I’ve ever been in my life right now. When I see 22 (metres) something, it’s fun to see; but I think there’s another level. I’m not there yet and it just takes time to let the body get used to all the little stretches, the pressures on the hand, everything seems like it takes a little bit longer but it goes a lot farther.”
