Cantwell headed back to Olympics

Former Eldon Mustang and Missouri Tiger Christian Cantwell will once again represent the United States at the Olympics.

Cantwell punched his ticket to London on Sunday by finishing third in the shot put at the U.S. Olympic Trials. His best throw traveled 69 feet, 9 3/4 inches.

Reese Hoffa won the event with a toss of 72 feet, 2 1/4 inches. Ryan Whiting finished second. They will join Cantwell on the Olympic team.

This will be Cantwell's second trip to the Olympics. He won a silver medal at the 2008 Games in Beijing.
