Overview by IAAF    1936_olympic_stadium.jpg
By the 1936 Olympics Järvinen had improved his world record a further five times, finally reaching 77.23 seven weeks before the Games (a throw which would have been 81m+ under current radial measurement rules). After his record, Järvinen suffered a back injury, and was a shadow of his normal self, throwing just 69.18 for fifth in the final. Finnish hopes remained with Nikkanen and Toivonen, and while they threw admirably, exceeding 70m, neither could top the 71.84 of shot bronze medallist Gerhard Stöck.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
By 1936 Matti Järvinen, the defending gold medalist, had set 10 consecutive world records. He had won the 1934 European Championship by almost seven metres and was an overwhelming favorite until a few weeks before the Olympics, when he injured his back. Hurting in Berlin he could throw only 69.18 (226-11¾) and would place fifth. His Finnish teammates, Yrjö Nikkanen and Kalervo Toivonen, won the silver and bronze medals, but the gold went to German Gerd Stöck who triumphed with his fifth-round throw of 71.84. Stöck was also shot put bronze medalist in Berlin. In 1938, Nikkanen twice broke Järvinen’s world record but placed second to Järvinen at the 1938 European Championships.
