How could he not throw the 12lber over 40ft? Crap, I am smaller than he was out of high school, slower, weaker, and shorter and I DID throw the 12lber over 40ft within 15mins of learning the motions of a very simplified glide. I saw guys that were slower and weaker than me (but much taller) do the same thing.
Gatlin was not 175 in 2004-2006. You are on crack if you think that. I’m sure Leonard Scott and Shawn Crawford were also in the 170s (sarcasm).
