🔺 Shot(put) Heard 'Round The World. Razorback track & field volunteer coach Ryan Crouser shattered a 31-year-old shot put world record with a 23.37 meter throw at U.S. Olympic Trials. Imagine throwing a bowling ball 76 feet... because that's what Crouser did. Watch the throw in all its glory here.
🔺 Tokyo Bound. Arkansas alum Hunter Woodhall qualified for the Tokyo Paralympics in two events this weekend during the U.S. Paralympic Team Trials. Woodhall won the 400m and finished runner-up in the 100m. Listen to him talk about his experience as a track star on The Hog Pod.
🔺 Breaking Records. Razorback junior track star Markus Ballengee broke the Arkansas school record during the second day of the decathlon at the U.S. Olympic Trials, becoming the first Razorback to ever score over 8,000 points. The final tally of 8,097 points placed Ballengee seventh overall among the 18 who were part of the Olympic Trials field, moving up seven places from his first day 14th place position.
