The qualifications for the shot put competition took place on Tuesday.

Bob Bertemes made 20 meters and 16 cm, which put him in 11th position of 16 and means he won't make it to the finals.

Throws of just under 21 meters were necessary to qualify in a very competitive field and Bertemes came up short.

Bob Bertemes' national record of 22 meters and 22 cm would have put him first in the qualifications but he was not able to find the form to carry him through to the next rounds.

Bertemes now looks to the Paris games in 2024.
