      I had a lifting friend who was a shot putter, too. He drilled a hole into a shot to make it lighter. Got caught with it. His nickname afterwards was „the field cheat“ ( „der Sportplatzbetrueger“ in German). I now see that the English term is much more to the point..never translated it before...much better than the looooong, stiff German...

      This post deviates from "squat-thrust," but it does involve the shot---and still causes me to chuckle A friend who was an elite coach (in throws circles) was forever tagged w/ a "mistake" from his youth in Indiana. Allegedly sneaking an underweight shot into competition in high school, he was henceforth referred to as "Light Shot Larry."  How many of us haven't at least thought of constructing an unfair competitive advantage in sports or whatever? I've witnessed the most flagrant actors in youth T&F. I remember a father who volunteered (to record the distances) in a local meet.  He recorded a throw (his son's) that was 30 feet beyond the existing national high school record; the result was squelched by the meet director. In the larger youth meets, we never placed a parent in a position to measure or record any event in which a son or daughter participated. Wonder why? 😀
