New Irish Indoor Record for Eric Favors


Eric Favors (Raheny Shamrocks AC) smashed his own National Record by adding 19cm to his record Indoor shot put throw.

The 24 year old who is in college at University of South Carolina threw a 19.68m (64'5ft) which was the biggest throw by an Irish athlete in 28 years.

Eric has been training extremely well this winter with some big PR’s in the gym, so this performance bodes exceptionally well for the upcoming 2021 season.

Video of the throw is available on Eric's Twitter page : @FricEavors
