The Shot Put is one of several field throwing events in Track & Field

The Shot is thrown in a style called puting. It is very different from the normal style of throwing a object. The shot put athlete needs to have a lot of explosive strength to be a contender in this sport.

The shot circle is 2 meters in diameter. Going out of the circle during a throw, or exiting from the front of the circle is a foul.
The shot itself weights 7.25kg(15.96lbs).
