FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arizona State senior Jordan Clarke took one step closer to history on Friday, winning his fourth consecutive NCAA shot put championship at the 2013 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships.
Despite a minor hand injury suffered early this season, Clarke dominating his competition at the Randal Tyson Track Center with a winning mark of 20.50m (67 feet, 3.25 inches) that was just shy of his season's best in the event. The mark was well over a foot better than his closest competition, Kole Weldon of Texas Tech.
The latest NCAA title follows Clarke's victories at the 2012 indoor and outdoor championships and the 2011 outdoor championship. If he wins this year's outdoor title, he would join Kansas' Karl Salb (1969-71) as the second person in NCAA history to win five consecutive shot put titles.
ASU has won nine of the last 11 men's NCAA shot put title -- all under the tutelage of throws coach David Dumble. Olympian Ryan Whiting won five titles during his Sun Devil career before passing the torch to Clarke.
Early in the day, Dumble coached Chelsea Cassulo to a fourth-place finish in the women's weight throw - despite coming into the day ranked 14th in the category.
