Shot Put

Shot put has been one of the events of the Olympics in Rome, since 1896. This is one sport that requires strength, and techniques. As time went by, the throwing styles and techniques had some improvements, which led to the thrower having more power while being able to achieve farther distances. According to Scottish historians, shot puts trace their origins to the 12th century when stone-throwing was part of the “Tailteann Games”.

Originally, the shot put used in the 18th century was a cannonball, and then the one used in the Olympics was made of lead. The modern-day shot put is made of either smooth brass or iron.

Women’s Shot Put

In early days, there was a patriarchal system that contributed to the exclusion of women from getting involved in so many things including sports, but gradually, women began to get included in sports, including sporting activities that required power and stamina like the shot put. The standard weight of the women’s shot is 4 kg. Female athletes have made their marks and have been doing so since their inclusion in major sporting events.
