Dear BIOMCH-L readers:

I am looking for some references on the biomechanics of shot putting.
Any information or suggestions are helpful but I am particularly
interested in studies which reported parameters such as the velocity of
the shot at release, the angle of release, joint angle data, total body
centre of mass data, etc.

I will post a summary. Thanks in advance for your help.
