Steinbach’s Stone Tossing
Posted on Sunday, October 22nd, 2017 by John Wood
Early weightlifters often participated in many other forms of “heavy” athletics and field events were a natural fit. Here’s the great lifting champion Josef Steibach also doing a little stone tossing. On June 23, 1907, Steinbach won the Stone Throwing Championships of Austria with a toss of 7.17 meters — this may have been that very throw.
