There's really no getting around it this week.

Braheme Days Jr (Bridgeton, NJ) moved to US#7 all-time and punctured 70 feet for the first time, throwing 70-8 at the Eastern States Championships at the Armory in New York on Tuesday. It was Days' fourth PR since the middle of January and a sure sign that he has emerged as the top shot-putter in the country.
