Thrower Of The Week: Dylan Armstrong

This week it was hard to pick the thrower of the week. Among great shot put results from Canada (Dylan Armstrong 22.21m) and USA (Adam Nelson 22.09m, Christian Cantwell 21.87m, Reese Hoffa 21.86m) there were some good efforts from other events as well. Dmitriy Tarabin (RUS   ) threw his wonderful personal best 85.10m in the men´s javelin, Robert Harting (GER   ) was up to his class with 68.51m in the men´s discus and Piotr Malachowski (POL   ) showed he is getting into a form with 68.49m.

However, we decided to select Dylan Armstrong as the Thrower Of The Week. He won at the Canadian Championships, but more importantly, his winning throw was recorded at 22.21m - his new lifetime best, #1 this year in the season´s top list and a new Canadian shot put record!
