Probably the best and most fierce thrower I ever had the pleasure of officiating. He was all business in the ring, but a very nice man outside of it. Another treasure for American Discus throwers.

John Powell Report Abuse
Pan American Games gold 1975 Mexico City

Although John only held the WR for a short period of time I think he is by far the best technician when it comes to analytics of throwing the discus. His prickly attitude probably worked a little against him in the voting.

L. Jay Silvester Report Abuse
Put more feet on the world record than any previous or since thrower. He was ranked in the top two or three in the world for about 16 years. He set seven world records and won silver medal in 1972. He was the first to throw 60 and seventy meters. To match this accomplishment Jurgen Schult would have to throw around 260 feet. He won world championships, and threw over 230 feet in 1971.

Although I greatly respect Jay his remark in a Track & Field News article berating Al Oerter pretty much sealed his fate. Oerter OWNED Jay every time they competed against each other and I thought Jay showed poor sportsmanship with his remarks.
