Jay Silvester

Jay Silvester (born 27 August 1937 in Tremonton, Utah) was an American athlete who mainly competed in the discus throw. He competed for the United States in the men's discus throw at the 1972 Summer Olympics held in Munich, Germany, where he won the silver medal.

Silvester was one of the U.S.'s most consistent discus throwers through the 1960s and 1970s. He was a member of four consecutive Olympic teams, starting in 1964. His Olympic career overlapped with those of Al Oerter and Mac Wilkins.

Silvester was the first thrower in history to pass the 60 meter mark, which he did on his first world record throw of 60.56 metres (198-8). He broke the world record four times, adding an astounding total of almost 30 feet to the record he first claimed from Rink Babka.
