A shot's been fired ahead of this week''s Big Shot Challenge in Christchurch and Auckland.
American shotputter Ryan Whiting is questioning why Jacko Gill isn't joining Tom Walsh in competing tomorrow in Christchurch and in Auckland on Thursday.
Gill shunned organisers efforts to include him in the events and Whiting says it's pathetic.
"Yeah I've never actually seen Jacko throw a shot in person. I don't know if he actually does or not."
Whiting says Walsh is gaining all the valuable experience while Gill is hiding.
