Oh man. I’ll never watch again. All this technology and analysis is ruining what was once a wonderful sport. Back in my day we didn’t rely on this technology. We just got out there and relied on our instincts! Ratings will continue to decline and the sport will eventually die… What? This is about shot put?… not baseball??? Oh, Never mind 😊😂

😂 so true. Oh I know. All (most) competitive sports have gone this direction. I was speaking tongue IN cheek bcs baseball seems to be the one most ppl b****/complain about.

Funny but.  There’s no denying that it lessons exceptionalism.  If everyone is exceptional. Nobody really is.

I don’t feel in regards to baseball (most sports) it makes everyone exceptional. You get the info/data, the individual still needs to execute. Let’s just stick to the “funny” part 😉 haha

You would rather have most be mediocre so the great really looks good?

Hey !  You already knew that was my angle.  I just like it to be as hard as possible. Weeds out the ones who aren’t willing to die for it ! 😇

Will the governing body now copy the R&A and USGA approach and wait until people are chucking the things out of the stadium before banning old pairs of shoes with a particular sole pattern as a solution?

Given that the shot put is a purely ballistic flight problem the science required to optimize launch conditions is a high school physics problem.
