Allan "Al" Dean Feuerbach is a former American track and field athlete. He competed in the shot put at the 1972 and 1976 Olympics and finished in fifth and fourth place, respectively. He missed the 1980 Games due to their boycott by the United States. On May 5, 1973, he broke Randy Matson's seven-year-old world record in the shot put by throwing 21.82 meters at the San Jose Invitational at San Jose State College. Just weeks later, competing in a different sport, olympic-style weight lifting, he finished second in the heavyweight division at the U.S. weightlifting championships. Feuerbach currently works as a free lance audio technologist. He was a four time American champion in the shot put, plus he added three indoor championships and a British AAA Championship.
