O'BRIEN Parry (1932) United States / Track and Field
Was the greatest shot putter of the century. It was O'Brien who invented the new putting technique: by starting his swing with his back to the stop, with his legs bent, he rotates in such a way as to give maximum propulsion to the shot.He was Olympic champion in 1952 and kept his title four years later in Melbourne. Parry O'Brien remained unbeaten for ten years, but he only took the silver medal in Rome in 1960, when he suffered his first defeat.
