Olympic champion Ryan Crouser shattered the men’s Shot Put World Indoor record with only his first throw of the competition at the American Track League Meeting #1 here in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Sunday.

Crouser Breaks World Record With Ease

Although there was no doubt about the record improving, Crouser was made to wait a long time to get the official mark, which was confirmed at 22.82 meters – converted to 74 feet and 10½ inches.

“I just wanted to come back out and compete after training for so long,” Ryan said. “I was nervous before the first throw. …but I had a lot of energy.”

Crouser, who revealed that he is still under heavy training, expects to improve as the season progresses and when he tapers off.

“I feel like there is more there. I am excited to see what will happen,” he added.

Crouser’s effort, which was inches from clearing the entire throwing surface, broke the previous world and American record of 22.66m (74-4¼ ), set by American Randy Barnes on Jan. 20, 1989.

He also had another throw beyond the previous world record, which was 22.70m in the third round.

Chukwuebuka Enekwechi of Nigeria grabbed second place with a mark of 20.65m, achieved in the third round, while USA’s Payton Otterdahl was in third with 20.53m.
