Crouser throws third best mark of his career

Ryan Crouser cruised to his tenth straight victory in the shot put to highlight the field events action at the Meeting International Mohammed VI d’Athletisme, the tenth stop of the 2017 IAAF Diamond League, in Rabat on Sunday (16).

Loosening up with a 21.91m toss in the first round, Crouser all but sealed his win with a 22.21m effort in the second. Illustrating remarkable consistency, he followed up with 22.44m in round three and his best, 22.47m, in the final round. It was the third best toss of his career and another meeting record to add to his growing collection.

“I’m loading now (with training) so I surprised myself today,” said the 24-year-old, who remains unbeaten in 2017. “I concentrated on technique today and wanted to simulate a championship competition. I think I can throw a lot further in the next few weeks.” IAAF
