    Rob,
    I think your list is almost complete. I think Al Feuerbach had a profound influence on shot putting world wide. Although he dod not earn any Olympic medals he modeled that the smaller shot putter could compete on the world stage with the big and strong. His tech was grasceful and fluid at his best. He was foundational in the San Jose movement for throwers and should be recognized as such.

    That Maui Wind post by none other then Chuck-e-Poo-N. If the Gorilla said what the above said, there would be a fire storm of written words put out here on the Ring. Yeah Yeah, I know Chuckie wrote, "take it with a grain of salt!" still he said it. Hopefully the winds come in from the right direction today and tomorrow. Lets see some good marks!

    I would actually set up a pay-per-view too see Jared Rome attempt to throw Chucky with a tail wind or for that matter in OUR stadium but I'm quessing Chuck wouldn't "man-up" enough to summon the courage too even post with a real name let alone get within arms distance of a REAL World Class athlete ?

    On a more POSITIVE note: I can't remember who said this but " The worst day at a track meet (Maui tailwinds)is better than the best day at work" ... can you read the envy in thsi post Chuck ?

    Have a GREAT Day!

    Ron,
    In the thorwing brotherhood, my fondest memories are of training, traveling, and laughing with Zane and Mike. Being at a small school like Nevada, we were low budget on everything from Motel 6 to eating and the Chuck Wagon with the senior citizens. Mike gave of himself as he put his own throwing career on the shelf to coach all of us. He had flashes liek when he threw over 71 warming up for the Stanford Inv and it truly got Big O's attention. Zane was a miracle. He would go on to throw almost 21 meters with an under three hundred pound bench press.He had an over 21 meter finger foul (supposedly) on the toeboard at 1984 TAC. We spent much time outside of the track together and played hard. Truly great throwing athletes and friends!
