Oladipo's previous PR was 65-10.5 that he thew for the Great Southwest Classic win is now in the wind giving way to Oladipo's new top two tosses, "I just wanted to come out and give a great performance in the shot in my last high school meet."

Later in the week, Oladipo will go for record #2 of the competition. Oladipo's premiere event is the discus and he has to be feeling confident for a record setting performance there as well. Oladipo won the discus at last year's AAU Junior Olympic Games that were in his own back yard at Humble's Turner Stadium. Last year's winning toss of 192-6 will probably be one of his warm up tosses this year.
If Oladipo wants to break the AAU Junior Olympic Games record he'll have to throw over 202-7, which he has done eleven times this season. Oladipo's season and personal best of 215-2 from the Jesuit Sheaner Relays broke the Texas state discus record. Here is the irony, that Texas state discus record that Oladipo now holds previously belonged to Splendora, Texas native Brian Robison. The current 202-7 AAU Junior Olympic record belongs to the exact same Brian Robison.
It's possible Oladipo heard about the record setting challenge issued by Miami Gardens Express. Well, here is another record for the Texas tally. Wait for the discus competition and Oladipo could possible add another to the count.
