The '''shot put''' is a [[track and field]] event involving "throwing"/"putting" (throwing in a pushing motion) a heavy spherical object —the ''shot''—as far as possible. The shot put competition for men has been a part of the modern Olympics since their revival in 1896, women's competition began in 1948.

==History==
  +
[[File:Shotput.jpg|thumb|right|Shot putter at the University of Nebraska, 1942, showing the circle and stopboard]]
  +
[[Homer]] makes mention of competitions of rock throwing by soldiers during the [[Trojan War|Siege of Troy]] but there is no record of any dead weights being thrown in Greek competitions. The first evidence for [[Stone put|stone-]] or weight-throwing events date back more than 2000 years in the [[Scottish Highlands]].<ref name="White2009">{{cite book|author=Colin White|title=Projectile Dynamics in Sport: Principles and Applications|url=http://books.google.com/books?id=mm8zoQ-GYuAC&pg=PA131|accessdate=6 July 2011|date=31 December 2009|publisher=Taylor & Francis|isbn=978-0-415-47331-6|pages=131–}}</ref> In the 16th century [[Henry VIII of England|King Henry VIII]] was noted for his prowess in court competitions of weight and [[hammer throw]]ing. {{Cn|date=August 2012}}

The first events resembling the modern shot put likely occurred in the [[Middle Ages]] when soldiers held competitions in which they hurled [[Round shot|cannonballs]]. Shot put competitions were first recorded in early 19th century [[Scotland]], and were a part of the British Amateur Championships beginning in 1866.<ref>[http://www.iaaf.org/community/athletics/trackfield/newsid=9444.html Shot Put - Introduction]. [[IAAF]]. Retrieved on 2010-02-28.</ref>
   
  +
Competitors take their throw from inside a marked circle {{convert|2.135|m|ft}} in [[diameter]], with a stopboard about {{convert|10|cm|in}} high at the front of the circle. The distance thrown is measured from the inside of the [[circumference]] of the circle to the nearest mark made in the ground by the falling shot, with distances rounded down to the nearest centimetre under [[International Association of Athletics Federations|IAAF]] and [[World Masters Athletics|WMA]] rules.

===Legal throws===
  +
[[File:Bundesarchiv Bild 183-44941-0005, Jiri Skobla.jpg|right|thumb|upright|Czechoslovakian shot putter [[Jiří Skobla]] showing the correct technique for keeping the shot near the neck]]
  +
The following rules are adhered to for a legal throw:
  +
* Upon calling the athlete's name, they have sixty seconds to commence the throwing motion.
  +
* The athlete may not wear [[gloves]]; IAAF rules permit the [[taping]] of individual fingers.
  +
* The athlete must rest the shot close to the [[neck]], and keep it tight to the neck throughout the motion.
  +
* The shot must be released above the height of the [[shoulder]], using only one hand.
  +
* The athlete may touch the inside surface of the circle or stopboard, but must not touch the top or outside of the circle or stopboard, or the ground beyond the circle. Limbs may however extend over the lines of the circle in the air.
  +
* The shot must land in the legal sector (34.92°) of the throwing area.
  +
* The athlete must leave the throwing circle from the back.
   
----
+
[[Foul (sports)|Foul]] throws occur when an athlete:
These Redirect pages should be eliminated in either of two ways.
+
* Does not pause within the circle before beginning the throwing motion.
* #1 Create a article of our own for this page.
+
* Does not begin the throwing movement within sixty seconds of having his or her name called.
* #2 On every page a {{Pagename}} link exists make a direct link to the original Wikipedia article.
+
* Allows the shot to drop below his shoulder or outside the vertical plane of his shoulder during the put.
  +
* During the throwing motion, touches with any part of the body (including shoes):
  +
** the top or ends of the stop board
  +
** the top of the iron ring
  +
** anywhere outside the circle.
  +
* Throws a shot which either falls outside the throwing sector or touches a sector line on the initial impact.
  +
* Leaves the circle before the shot has landed.
  +
* Does not leave from the rear half of the circle.
   
Things to think about:
+
===Misconceptions===
* #1 Creating our own page for this article may add a superfluous amount of pages.
+
The following are either obsolete or non-existent but commonly believed rules:
  +
* The athlete must enter the circle from the back (none of the rule books contain such a clause).
  +
* The athlete entering the circle, then exiting and re-entering it prior to starting the throw results in a foul (all the rule books allow an athlete to leave a circle prior to starting a throw, but this still counts within the one minute time limit; the allowable method of exiting the circle varies by rule book).
  +
* Loose clothing, shoelaces, or long hair touching outside the circle during a throw, or an athlete bringing a towel into the circle and then throwing it out prior to the put results in a foul (these are no longer rules or never were rules—none of these actions provide unfair advantage to the thrower).
   
* #2 Some of these article links may be on hundreds of pages that would need direct links.
+
==Competition==
  +
[[File:EVD-bala-000.jpg|right|thumb|A shot putter with a representation of the circle and legal sector]]
  +
Shot put competitions have been held at the modern [[Summer Olympic Games]] since their inception in 1896, and it is also included as an event in the [[IAAF World Championships in Athletics|World Athletics Championships]].
   
{{Stub}}
+
Each competition has a set number of rounds of throws. Typically there are three preliminary rounds to determine qualification for the final, and then three more rounds in the final. Each competitor is credited with their longest throw, regardless of whether it was achieved in the preliminary or final rounds. The competitor with the longest legal put is declared the winner.
  +
  +
In open competitions the men's shot weighs {{convert|7.260|kg|lb}}, and the women's shot weighs {{convert|4|kg|lb}}. Junior, school, and masters competitions often use different weights of shots, typically below the weights of those used in open competitions; the individual rules for each competition should be consulted in order to determine the correct weights to be used.
  +
  +
==Putting styles==
  +
Two putting styles are in current general use by shot put competitors: the ''glide'' and the ''spin''. With all putting styles, the goal is to release the shot with maximum forward [[velocity]] at an angle of approximately forty degrees.
  +
  +
===Glide===
  +
The origin of the glide dates to 1951, when [[Parry O'Brien]] of the [[United States]] invented a technique that involved the putter facing backwards, rotating 180 degrees across the circle, and then tossing the shot.
  +
  +
With this technique, a right-hand thrower would begin facing the rear of the circle, and then kick to the front with the left leg, while pushing off forcefully with the right. As the thrower crosses the circle, the [[hips]] twist toward the front, the left arm is swung out then pulled back tight, followed by the shoulders, and they then strike in a putting motion with their right arm. The key is to move quickly across the circle with as little air under the feet as possible, hence the name "glide".
  +
  +
===Spin===
  +
In 1972 [[Aleksandr Baryshnikov]] set his first [[Soviet Union|USSR]] record using a new putting style, the spin ("круговой мах" in Russian), invented by his coach Viktor Alexeyev.<ref name=Barysh1>[http://www.sportsdaily.ru/articles/hronograf-22508 Aleksandr Baryshnikov biography on sportsdaily.ru (in russian)] reference tested at 11 May 2009</ref><ref name=Barysh2>[http://www.atlant.ru/sport/articles/sport_star/1102003022816/index.php Aleksandr Baryshnikov, Athlete from Russia (in russian)] reference tested at 11 May 2009</ref> The spin involves rotating like a [[discus throw|discus]] thrower and using [[Angular momentum|rotational momentum]] for power. In 1976 Baryshnikov went on to set a [[world record]] of {{convert|22.00|m|ft|abbr=on}} with his spin style, and was the first shot putter to cross the 22 metre mark.{{citation needed|date=April 2012}}<ref name=ruderman1>[http://www.iaaf-rdc.ru/ru/docs/publication/28.htm Григорий РУДЕРМАН (Израиль), заслуженный тренер России «Метания в хх веке : тенденции развития.»] reference tested at 11 May 2009</ref>
  +
  +
With this technique, a right-hand thrower faces the rear, and begins to spin on the [[Ball (anatomy)|ball]] of the left foot. The thrower comes around and faces the front of the circle and drives the right foot into the middle of the circle. Finally, the thrower reaches for the front of the circle with the left foot, twisting the hips and shoulders like in the glide, and puts the shot.
  +
  +
When the athlete executes the spin, the upper body is twisted hard to the right, so the imaginary lines created by the shoulders and hips are no longer parallel. This action builds up [[torque]], and stretches the muscles, creating an involuntary [[Elasticity (physics)|elasticity]] in the muscles, providing extra [[Power (physics)|power]] and [[momentum]]. When the athlete prepares to release, the left foot is firmly planted, causing the momentum and energy generated to be [[Momentum#Conservation_of_linear_momentum|conserved]], pushing the shot in an upward and outward direction.
  +
  +
Another purpose of the spin is to build up a high [[rotational speed]], by swinging the right leg initially, then to bring all the limbs in tightly, similar to a [[Figure skating|figure skater]] bringing in their arms while [[Figure skating spins|spinning]] to increase their speed. Once this fast speed is achieved the shot is released, transferring the energy into the shot put.
  +
  +
===Usage===
  +
Currently, most top male shot putters use the spin. However the glide remains popular, especially at the amateur level and among women, since the technique leads to greater consistency compared to the rotational technique. Almost all throwers start by using the glide.
  +
  +
It is worth noting that the world record by a male putter of {{convert|23.120|m|ftin|3|abbr=on}} by [[Randy Barnes]] was completed with the spin technique, while the second-best all-time put of {{convert|23.063|m|ftin|3|abbr=on}} by [[Ulf Timmermann]] was completed with the glide technique.
  +
  +
Measuring which technique can provide the most potential is difficult, as many of the best throws recorded with each technique have been completed by athletes under [[Use of performance-enhancing drugs in sport|doping]] suspicions, or with a record of drug violations.{{cn|date=August 2012}} The decision to glide or spin may need to be decided on an individual basis, determined by the thrower's size and power. Short throwers may benefit from the spin and taller throwers may benefit from the glide, but many throwers do not follow this guideline.
  +
  +
==Types of shots==
  +
The shot put ball is made of different kinds of materials depending on its intended use. Materials used include [[iron]], [[cast iron]], solid [[steel]], [[stainless steel]], [[brass]], and [[Synthetic fiber|synthetic materials]] like [[Vinyl polymer|polyvinyl]]. Some [[metals]] are more [[Density|dense]] than others making the size of the shot vary, for example, indoor shots are larger than outdoor shots, so different materials are used to make them.
