2017-04-21 15:23 JPEditor Shot Put - Women 585 Zybina (USSR) 16.35 New Olympic Record (VPRS 10742/P1 B1486) (Version)
This does not show Galina Zybina (Soviet Union - bib 585) setting her OR of 16.35m in the first round of the Women's Shot Put on 30 November. Instead it shows Earlene Brown (USA - bib 580) competing in that event, most probably in the morning's Qualifying round. Brown finished 6th in the final, Zybina was 2nd.<br/><br/>For others photo of Brown in the Shot Put, see<br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/version/183399785'>http://trove.nla.gov.au/version/183399785</a> and:<br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/version/183399679'>http://trove.nla.g...
