Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
The biggest upset of the first day of the first World Championships came in the men’s shot. Udo Beyer – who raised the world record to 22.22 in June – finished only sixth, and the other big favourite, Laut, also ended up without a medal. The title went to the man who ranked third on the 1983 world lists, but this still came as a surprise. The 24 year-old Sarul started positively with 21.04. This held the lead until Timmermann – the GDR number 2 – put 21.16 at the end of the fifth round. In the sixth, Beyer did not complete his attempt and showed he had been nursing an injury to his right hamstring. Sarul and Timmermann were the final two throwers in the contest. The Pole dramatically regained the lead with 21.39 on his last throw. The GDR athlete followed with a no-throw clearly below that of the leader.
 These are the official results of men's shot put at the 1983 IAAF World Championships in Helsinki, Finland. There were a total number of 20 participating athletes, with the final held on 7 August 1983.
