Ratified: World Record for Crouser

From World Athletics:

World records set this year by Ryan Crouser, Mondo Duplantis and Gudaf Tsegay have been ratified, while the world U20 record by Reynold Cheruiyot is also now official.

Crouser’s was the first of these recently ratified marks to be set, as he launched the shot 23.56m at the USATF Los Angeles Grand Prix, the season’s sixth World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting, on 27 May.

With that performance, the world and Olympic champion added 19cm to the previous world record of 23.37m that he achieved at the US Olympic Trials in Eugene in June 2021.

The world record mark came in the fourth round and his series also included throws of 23.31m, 23.23m, 22.94m, 22.86m and 22.80m. “I’m really excited because it didn’t feel polished,” Crouser explained. “It felt like I had a tonne of power, and I caught a big one.”
