The uniform outer diameter keeps the same exact same size as you train with variable weights

The Gill Athletics Training Shot is a turned iron shot with a uniform size of the outer diameter that makes it ideal for hand placement and how it feels. Because it is constant the experience remains the same for all weights of the series.
The rules of shot put for NFHS, NCAA, and World Athletics competitions are that the shot must weigh at least 12lbs. Unfortunately, there are a number of shots that might weigh 11.7lbs (for example) and yet are sold as 12lbs shots. This "rounding" up or down, even by a few ounces is troublesome, to say the least. The problem with this should be obvious: when you train with an 11.7lbs shot you find out at competition time that you must adjust to something different.

This is exactly why Gill has added the "Legal Guarantee Badge" so you will know for sure that it will meet the legal weight requirement and there will be no second-guessing. You can train with it and trust that come competition time it will not be disqualified.

Since 1918, Gill Athletics® has been empowering coaches with innovative equipment that helps develop track athletes and elevate the sport across the globe. Founded by a coach determined to build better track equipment, we have been delivering the maximum in safety, durability, and long-term performance for over a century.

About Gill Athletics

The Story Behind Gill Athletics

Harry Gill, an unknown athlete, became an overnight sensation when he won the American All-Around Championship in 1900. Impressively, this was Gill’s first-ever All-Around competition and his competitors became spectators as his performance led to a record-setting score. Gill collected many medals and set world-class marks in 5 events, but more importantly, he acquired invaluable insight that fueled his next endeavor.

In 1904, Gill began his legendary coaching career at the University of Illinois. There he established a coaching career so successful it was without equal and his reputation in the track and field world was unimpeachable. Gill authored the book, Track and Field Athletics: For Coach and Contestant that for years served as the sport's standard coaching manual. In this book, he wrote “a great deal of care should be taken in selecting the equipment used by track and field athletes. Their performance depends on the implements they have in which and with which to compete - and good equipment helps considerably in making the best performances.”

Unsatisfied with the quality of track equipment available, it was in 1918 that he crafted the first piece of his own track equipment, the ash javelin.  In four short years, the company bearing his name was the first to manufacture a complete line of track and field equipment.  The most enduring of all of Gill’s accomplishments is his line of track and field equipment. Gill’s company is responsible for a long list of innovative equipment that has been instrumental in elevating the sport and performance of track athletes worldwide.

100 years later Gill has never wavered from Coach Gill’s vision and considers it a great honor to be stewards of his legacy.
