Shot put is a sport where people take a really heavy ball and throw it as far as possible. The truly golden part about this sport, though, are the faces of the competitors.

1. "You wanna see my impression of a pancake?"

2. "This ball is going DOWN"

3. "Nobody's gonna mess with me now."

4. "This one's for you, mom."

5. "I really should have gone to the washroom before this."

6. "Are you there god? It's me, baller."

4. "I've been working on my flirt face."

5. "Get off my lawn!"

9. "I work as a part time shot put player, part time horror film extra."

10. "Zoolander 2.0"

11. "I am HIGHLY suspicious of this metal ball."

12. "Daaaaamn, would you check out the rowing team?"

13. "Hold on, I think I've got a sneeze coming."

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
