Ryan Crouser Bench Press

Ryan Crouser, a 6-foot-7, 315 pound shot putter from Boring, Oregon, is a new world record holder in the shot put. In fact, he’s so good that he was recently named Track & Field News’ 2021 World Male Athlete of the Year. He has also been awarded the Jesse Owens Award, the USA Track & Field’s top award.

Despite his impressive feats, Crouser isn’t always well-known outside his home country. His uncle Brian Crouser competed in javelin at the 1988 and 1992 Olympics. But Crouser is the last of his family to break the mold.

The Crouser family is considered to be one of the most elite throwing families in the world. Several members of the family have been on the winning side of an Olympic medal, including Mitch, who was the alternate to the javelin team in 1984. Among his brothers is Sam, who competed in the javelin at the 2016 Olympics. As far as the sport of shot put goes, Crouser is one of the most unique throwers to ever grace the world stage.

Crouser has a plethora of accolades, including being a two-time NCAA champion, a three-time national champion, a two-time American track and field championship winner, and a four-time World Championship qualifier. He’s also been a two-time World Champion in the shot put, and has earned USA Track & Field’s top award, the Jesse Owens Award.

Crouser also holds three world records. Not only is he the winner of the indoor shot put, he’s also the winner of the outdoor shot put. That’s a lot of competition to win, and he does a good job of keeping up.

Those of us who are fans of the game know that the shot put isn’t all about a big throw. There’s a lot of balletic footwork involved, and shot-putters have to figure out how to apply force within a small throwing circle. This is where the aforementioned binge-worthy, albeit small, feat of feats comes in.

Crouser also boasts a handful of other accomplishments, including a World Junior Record, an Arkansas Dual Shot Put title, and a Big 12 shot put championship. Of course, this list of accolades wouldn’t be complete without a gold medal. During his collegiate career, Crouser placed fifth in the NCAA’s shot put competition.

One of Crouser’s goals is to set up his own business. When he’s not competing in track, he spends his time playing baseball. And he’s quite the beer connoisseur. According to Crouser, “Beer is easy to drink,” but he has a limit. For a 275-pound shot putter, it’s a lot of work.

To be a real shot putter, you have to be able to do the right amount of weight lifting. You have to squat, bench press, and the like. However, Crouser does it all in the safest manner possible.

It’s not hard to tell that Crouser is a man of his word. After all, he was able to beat a guy with a bigger, better shot in an indoor and outdoor event. So, he’s got a lot of work ahead of him, but he’s doing a pretty good job of it so far.
