Ryan Crouser Improves Shot Put World Record to 23.56M

From Athletics Weekly - Los Angeles sees the greatest shot series of all time! 

Ryan Crouser threw 23.56m to add 19cm to his own world shot put record at the USATF Los Angeles Invitational on Saturday (May 27). Such was his effort, he almost threw the shot beyond the official throws area.

The event at Drake Stadium was part of the Continental Tour Gold and the biggest athletics event in LA for more than a decade as it gears up to stage the 2028 Olympics. 

Crouser’s throw came in the fourth round and his series also included 23.23m in the first round, 23.31m in the third, plus 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.
