Maybe more of us should see a shotputter cry. Maybe if we could, we would get it out of our heads that any woman who heaves a 16-pound steel ball must have muscles made by DuPont and a voice like Robert Mitchum's and the disposition of a truck driver who just got served a cold bowl of chili. Maybe more of us should see a shotputter laugh, too.

Mike Downey's column on Ramona Pagel (July 25) mentions that "any woman who heaves a 16-pound steel ball must have muscles made by DuPont." Well, he was only half right. Women only throw an eight-pound ball. JOHN DRYCE Hollywood Editor's note: Women put a 4-kilo shot, 8 pounds 13 ounces; the men put a 7.26-kilo shot, 16 pounds.

Three times this year, Ramona Pagel had improved her American record in the shotput, giving her the top 18 throws ever by an American woman. Saturday in the Michelob Invitational, Pagel improved her record by nearly three feet as she put the shot 66 feet 2 1/2 inches in front of 3,753 at Balboa Stadium. Was Pagel's shot heard around the world, or at least by her counterparts in East Germany and the Soviet Union?
