Couple of months ago Throwholics elaborated on the “fact” that David Storl is going to try to throw the discus again. (New Rivalry: Shot Put World Champion Storl tries discus again). Now its time for Robert Harting to turn around and take the 7.26kg ball to make some noise as he does with the discus.
Due to the 25-year anniversary of the Berlin wall the Berliner Morgenpost published a list of the 25 most important people living in East- and West- Berlin. To Throwholics knowledge Robert Harting, who is listed 7th used to be a great discus thrower. As a matter of fact he is the current Olympic, World and European Champion in the discus event. However, the Berliner Morgenpost seems to have more knowledge than we do.
According to their list it seems that Robert Harting is trying out the 7.26kg ball again because they describe him as the person winning all shot put competitions around the world. (25 wichtigsten Berliner)
Bad research has to be “punished” and therefore, we came up with this brief article. Of course Throwholics knows that Robert Harting sticks to the discus event. But maybe he considers to switch to shot put? Who knows :D
