Any other marks better?
I think he threw 67 feet with the 16-pound - but not certain

Its up there. And he threw 61 w/ the big implement?
seems like you could throw it as well:
You don't throw it, you put it. Thus the name.
Throw is generally take to do mean an extended arm movement.

That was 24.78m, with a shot that was 3/4 the weight of the adult implement (so just short of 5.5kg).
How far is that in real distance[?]
You're right, Gill threw only a foot or so shorter...with a shot that was about half a kilo lighter.
Given that Jacko Gill threw nearly that far as a 15 year old, I don't think it's the best record out there.
I believe Carter's best with the big boy ball is 71 4 3/4.

Michael Carter put/threw/flung the 16-pound (adult implement) shot 67-9. Quite impressive. His daughter won a NCAA title as well.
Houston McTear set world record as a prepster in 1978 in 60 meters (6.54) which was not broken until 1986 by convicted druggie Ben Johnson. He ran a 9.0 100 yards in high school but was not recognized as world record as it was hand-timed.
