If you've looked at any coverage of Olympic shot putter Reese Hoffa within the past 12 months, you're probably seen his famous parlor trick. Why should this source be any different?
I spent 120 seconds or so with Hoffa a few months back, and he showed me his skills. Hoffa also happens to be quite skilled at the shot put; he breezed through last night's semifinals (East Coast time) and was a strong contender for this morning's finals. I was supposed to post this before the finals actually happened, but I failed. Anyhow, you can find out for yourself how he did, but here's his parlor trick.
