Standing nearly 6'6", Rose was a back-to-back champion in the shot put in 1904 and 1908, and became the first athlete in the sport to throw a shot more than 50 feet. He won a silver in the event in 1912, and earned a third gold in the two-handed shot put, in which the competitors had to throw the shot both right-handed and left-handed. It was the only time the event would be part of the Olympics.
