Yeah hes a beast. His season started strong, but it has gone wrong late season. No medal at the  Euro champs and no wins in Diamond league. Bad for him. Last year he started strong as well, but didnt win the World champs.

Diamond league is a series of meets where you gather points from your placings. After the last meet a winner of the discipline will be announced. Kanter is ranked 3rd and theres not discus throw in the last meeting. Its still good, but as far as I know only the winner gets a prize.

That guy is a beast. The throws are awesome. In fact, all track and field is awesome. I wish it were on TV more.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Often times, yes. Some of the big shot putters and discus throwers come out of the blocks faster than a lot of sprinters. Like this guy. At some point in this vid it shows Brian Oldfield winning a race against a sprinter. Brian was the world record holder in the shot put til Randy Barnes came around.
