    ...to become the first clean spinner over 23m...lolol
    Well,i take it back.Only the gliders of the 80s did that.
    Fyi,Udo Beyer threw around that @ 37 years old in the 92 Oympics,when the DDR was no more...16 years after his gold medal.


    KSCthrower,he was around 65 all the time fouling,right ? Cause his result is 61...

    I think the reason a lot of top women keep gliding is because the spin doesn't give as much of an advantage to women. When you take into account how heavy some of the top women are vs. the weight of their shot, they are throwing a much smaller percent of their bodyweight than the men are.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but one of the reason the spin works so well is because the ball holds you back in the more torqued position. However, that will only work if the ball is heavy enough compared to your bodyweight, and it isn't for many top women. If women shot putters were smaller, or their ball was heavier, I think we might see more spinners.
