Hayden Tobias named Big Ten Male Co-Field Athlete of the Week

Ohio State senior thrower Hayden Tobias was named the Big Ten Male Co-Field Athlete of the Week on Wednesday. It’s the second time he’s been recognized with the honor during his career and the first this season.

So what led to Tobias receiving the honor? All he did is break the shot put meet record at the PNC Lenny Lyles Invite at Louisville with a best mark of 19.86m / 65’2.” That was good enough to win the competition and beat the runner-up by nearly two meters.

Tobias currently ranks third in the country in the shot put, leading all other Big Ten athletes. He isn’t just proficient at shot put though, he also finished sixth in the weight throw (18.38m / 60’3.75”).

Congrats are in order for Tobias and here’s to hoping there’s many more honors before this season is over.
