New Irish Indoor Shot Put Record for Eric Favors

Eric Favors (Raheny Shamrocks AC) smashed his own National Record by adding 19cm to his record Indoor shot put throw while competing for the University of South Carolina in the early hours of this morning.

The 24 year old threw a 19.68m (64'5ft) which was the biggest throw by an Irish athlete in 28 years.

Eric has been training extremely well this winter with some big PR’s in the gym, so this performance bodes exceptionally well for the upcoming 2021 season.

A video of the throw is available on Eric’s Twitter page :
