The Shot Put is recognized as a track and field event involving “throwing” or “putting” 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, and women’s competition began in 1948.
The first evidence of stone- or weight-throwing events was in the Scottish Highlands, and date back to the first century. The main consideration for Shot Putters new to the sport is safety. Even a 4- or 5-kg shot is still a fairly heavy, compact metal ball. Beginning Shot Putters should learn they can be seriously injured if struck by a thrown shot. The key to avoiding a Shot Put injury is awareness. Shot Putters should never release the shot when others are in the line of fire. Additionally, competitors should never retrieve their shots or walk in the field when others are throwing. Even a Shot Put that is rolled in from a field, can injure the hands of a participant in the event they attempt to pick up a Shot Put while in motion. Furthermore, Shot Putters need to be taught to proper and correct way to handle the Shot Put in addition to having the best insurance available – Westpoint Insurance!
