Maxwell Otterdahl Wins Shot Put Despite injury

               Maxwell Otterdahl had to overcome a leg injury in his quest to follow the family
               tradition of success in the throws.  In order to do that he changed his technique because
            using the spin, rather than the glide put less pressure on his damaged muscle. The change
         worked in the shot put as Otterdahl won that event(58' 7.25"), but he wasn't able to fully overcome that issue in the discus in a  wet circle and sometime slippery disc to finish 7th(151' 6")
