Bismarck's Jon Tharaldson is a senior on the track & field team at the University of Minnesota.
Last Friday, he uncorked the best shot put effort in the NCAA.
Tharaldson went 67 feet, 3.25 inches.
If you go beyond college, the Gophers senior now has the third best indoor toss in the Unite States and eighth best in the world.
Jon was a second team Indoor All American last year.
