Trinidad and Tobago's Carlos Greene produced a personal best in the men's shot put at the Paralympic Games, in London, England, yesterday.
Competing in the F11/12 category for visually impaired field athletes, Greene threw the iron ball 10.87 metres to finish 11th in a field of 21.
Ukraine's Andrii Holivets was the class of the field, striking gold with a 16.25m effort. Russian Vladimir Andryushchenko threw 15.21m to pick up silver, while bronze was bagged by Australia's Russell Short (14.73m).
Greene opened the competition with a 9.59m effort. He improved to 10.87m in round two, bettering his previous personal best of 10.71m by 16 centimetres. And in the third round, Greene landed the shot 10.20m.
Greene was also 11th in Sunday's men's discus F11 event, the 43-year-old T&T field athlete throwing 26.28m in round three after fouling his first two attempts.
