Mt. SAC Relays Highlights
Career Highlights

Mt. SAC has seen some great shot putters over the years, but none has thrown further than John. In 1988, he won his second Mt. SAC title by unleashing a throw of 73-10 3/4 -- at the time, the fifth furthest shot put in history (John's throw remains history's 12th longest performance). Only two Americans, and four international competitors, have ever thrown further than John.

While a student at UCLA, John was the 1984 NCAA champion in both the shot put and discus. His collegiate record of 71-11, established in 1984, stood for 11 years.

John was a two-time U.S. national Champion in the shot. He captured the bronze medal in the 1987 World Championship in Rome. He finished 4th at the 1984 Olympic Trials, and missed the 1988 Olympic Trials due to an injury.
