Who The Heck Is Luka Mustafic?

He's the new FIU and UAB Blazer Invite shot put record holder after shoving the shot 18.01 meters (59 feet, 1 inch) to win the event by a fat 1.7 meters (about 5 feet, 7 inches) in his first FIU meet this weekend.

Here's also who Mustafic is:

A 22-year-old junior from Croatia whose U.S. college career began at Virginia Tech, where he finished fourth in the 2012 ACC outdoor championships in the shot and third in the 2012 indoor championships. He made All-ACC for the latter and Academic All-ACC, so he's something the track team needs in the circle and in the classroom.

From there, Mustafic transferred to Florida, where he finished ninth in the 2013 SEC Indoor Championships. He threw for Croatia in the Under 23 European Championships in 2013.
