Christian Cantwell wins the gold medal during the 12th IAAF World Athletics Championships in Berlin, Germany. My personal favorite, Reese Hoffa, did not do to well during the competition, but it’s great to see Mr. Cantwell getting the gold.
Thank you to HBL01 for pointing this video out to us.
Adam Nelson, Reese Hoffa, Ralf Bartels, Christian Cantwell, mmm, mmm, mmm…
And what happens when you win the gold? You flex your muscles, of course. Here are some gorgeous photos of Christian in all of his arm flexing glory…
Alright, no spoilers here, but the results were very surprising and truly punched then kicked my arrogant American pride and ego… Here are just some awesome photos of Reese Hoffa, Christian Cantwell, and Adam Nelson from the 2008 Men’s Shot Put Final (courtesy of Daylife.com).
What a lineup. These three U.S. Olympians will definitely be a force to reckon with.
Chubarama once posted about Adam Nelson getting hypnotized as part of his conditioning to win it all in the Olympics. I remember kinda laughing at it. Sorry, Mr. Nelson, I know you guys are a team, but I’m cheering on for Reese Hoffa to win that Olympic Gold.
And then, yes, Christian Cantwell, you are one heck of a big and beefy bear.
In fact, you’re one of my favorite hot shotputters out there. You even took the Gold, placing Mr. Reese in second place, in the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Valencia on March 7, 2008. But this is a competition, and I need to take sides. I have to go with the formidable and handsome Reese Hoffa.
