Drake Relays, 1960

Title

Drake Relays, 1960

Description

Bill Nieder (in white, hands on hips), and Parry O'Brien (signing autographs) were shot putters whose competition in 1960 Relays was one of the highlights. Prior to the Relays they were supposedly feuding. Nieder won the 1960 shot put with a toss of 63'-11.5". This broke the Drake Relays record set by O'brien by over 4 feet, and beat O'Brien's then world record distance of 63'-4".
