Jamaica’s O’Dayne Richards represented today, at the Rio 2016 Olympics, in the Men’s Shot Put Final. He fouled his first attempt but threw 20.64m in another attempt and had to settle for eighth place. It often seemed as if the competition was between the two men repping Red & Blue. The USA took first and second place; Ryan Crouser threw 22.52m, an Olympic record, and Joe Kovacs threw 21.78m. Tomas Walsh of New Zealand took third place.
