Mike Stulce ’91, Track

Another all-world shot-putter to come through Aggieland was Mike Stulce.  A three-time All-American and National Champion at A&M, Stulce is the number 3 shot-putter in school history behind Barnes and fellow Hall of Famer Randy Matson.  He won four Southwest Conference Championships and had a personal best throw of 70-0 1/2 in 1990.  In 1988 and 1989, Stulce received the Texas A&M Outstanding Athlete Award.  He still stands at 7th on the all-time collegiate list for shot put.  After A&M, Stulce continued to have a phenomenal career.  In 1992, he was the #1 shot-putter in the world, he was the World Cup Champion, and he won the shot-put gold medal in the Barcelona Olympics.  But to prove that he wasn’t a “one year wonder”, Stulce earned the title of World Champion in 1993.
