Stone Put

This stone put is the precursor to the modern Olympic event of shot putting. The event is split into two events each with a different weighted stone and different rule set.

Braemar Stone: is thrown as a standing throw with no approach and a stone weighing up to 28 lbs is used for the men and 18 lbs for the women.

Open Stone: weighing up to 22 lbs for the men and 12 lbs for the women. It is thrown with the option of an approach that includes but not limited to the spin and the glide.

Our very own @Jason McDonald is among the elite in the country with an average of 45+ feet with the open stone and a powerful 38 foot Braemar.
