My word! (das Kugelstoßen) I’m going all German…

Last night I read the paper for the times of the Olympic highlights. I came across this field event: das Kugelstoßen, which I immediately (innately) knew and pictured. By elimination of the other events (speerwerfen, hammerwurf, diskus), it was also obvious. But for the life of me, I could not figure out what the English word was!

It must have been an hour before I came to ‘shotput’.

Am I being Deutschified?
