Grab a 16 pound metal ball, stand
inside a 7 foot circle, rest the ball between your neck and shoulder and push
your arm straight out with the thumb pointing down, don't forget to let go of
the ball or as the pros call it, the shot.
Now if your name was Randy Barnes and you were from the USA and you were in
Westwood, California on May 20, 1990 and you followed the instructions above,
then your shot would have flown exactly 23.12 meters, which would have been
enough to give you the record for the world's longest shot put.
The world's longest shot put for a female was set by
Helena Fibingerová of Czechoslovakia on February 19, 1977 at 22.50 meters, but
we must add that the women's shot weighs only 8.8 pounds.
