    Lisa Adams is Valerie’s younger sister. She suffers from left side paralysis - a form of cerebral palsy, I believe. She has been throwing now for 12 months, coach by older sister.

    Prediction 2020. Valerie and Lisa to both get gold in Tokyo.

    Chase Ealy probably disappointingly happy. She had at least 2 warmup throws well beyond 18; best about 19.50.

    World junior champion progressing nicely with her big PB.

    = = = =

    Men’s competition disappointing. Bukiwuecki, Walsh and Gill all had several warm up throws beyond 21. Bukowiecki looked the best though.

    Bukowiecki said on FB one of his fouls was measured at 21.65.

    They say so, although I don't think it was actually measured (could be wrong), whereas Bukowiecki's put was. But that was just a piece of info that I don't think indicates anything. It's definitely easier to have a big throw if you don't stay in the circle.

    I saw him having it measured after the competition had finished. And I would agree t21.65 looked about right

    Beat me to it Tuariki! I had just read the story and had copied and was about to paste to this thread. Both Jacko and Tom Walsh are listed to compete at the Aussie champs next week. No mention of that in the story however let's hope Jacko stays healthy and fulfils some of that amazing potential in the future.

    Australia champs today for men's shot put; featuring New Zealand's Tom Walsh and Jacko Gill against Australia's Damian Birkenhead. All 3 have gone over 21 previously.

    My picks are Walsh and Gill over 21m with Walsh winning. Birkenhead will be 3rd - might get over 20m
