"Anyone know if they are doing more than the Shot Put there?

I do not think so..I know they had originally thought to do Discus there but the top athletes would have thrown it out of the stadium, so they did Shot Put instead."

correct, they did not want to do anything that could cause damage to the ancient constructions, whatever is left from them anyway. I think there was no shot put in ancient times. It was really great idea to host even a single event in Olympia, the images were spectacular.
