Joe Kovacs Throws SB Of 22.93 To Win Diamond League Title
From FLOTRACK - American Joe Kovacs bested world champion Ryan Crouser by less than an inch to win the men's shot put at the Diamond League Prefontaine Classic.
EUGENE -- American Joe Kovacs bested world champion and world record holder Ryan Crouser by less than an inch to win the men's shot put at the Diamond League Prefontaine Classic at Hayward Field.
“This whole season’s been tough," Kovacs said. "First time being a dad, especially with twins, it was a crazy year and I’m glad to finish strong. The whole year I feel like I’ve been foul-tipping and missing everything, and I’m glad to come today and finally get behind the ball and make it go a little farther. I think there’s more there but it’s a great way to go into the off-season. I’m kind of hungry.”
It seems unfathomable that a competition of throwing strength between a man who can squat close to 900 pounds against another behemoth standing 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds could be decided by about the length of two staples. But that is exactly what unfolded here between these two longtime rivals and teammates.
