Three Olympic shot putters took home the exact same medals on Thursday as they did at the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro.
This is the first time in history that the same athletes have taken home the same medals in individual events at back-to-back Olympic Games, the Olympics said on Twitter.
Team USA’s Ryan Crouser took home gold in the Tokyo Games and in Rio de Janeiro, while Team USA’s Joe Kovacs took home silver, and Team New Zealand’s Tome Walsh won bronze.
Crouser broke his own Olympic record to win gold on Tuesday, and held a note honoring his late grandfather following his win.
