William Morrison Shotput  ‘The Big Mac’ Smashes past 20m Mark February 8, Notre Dame

Willie Morrison shattered his own Philippine and Southeast Asian Indoor Record with an impressive 20.21m. The performance erased his own 19.17m record set last month on January 19. His outdoor record which is also the South East Asian Games record remains at the 18.38m he threw at SEA Games but that will be gone as soon as he hits the outdoor season.

Morrison who represents the University of Indiana finished 2nd at the Meyo Invitational behind Tim Nedow who won with a 20.90m throw. Nedow who has a PB of 21.18m is the Canadian National Champion.

The 23-year-old needs to throw 21.10m to qualify for next year’s Tokyo Olympics by June 29. And he seems on the path to doing that right now. He needs to improve an average of at least 17 cm each month to hit that goal.

 

Morrison outdoor PB is 20.40m on 22 June 2019. Prior to gaining a Filipino passport. The 20.21m marks the first time he has thrown over 20 meters in 7 months.
