The Men's shot put event at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Daegu Stadium on September 1 and 2.

David Storl made a major improvement to achieve a new personal best of 21.50, leading the qualifying round by 45 cm (a foot and a half).

2007 Champion Reese Hoffa took the early lead and held it until Storl threw a new personal best 21.60 in the second round. Andrei Mikhnevich put a 21.40 in the third round to get close to Storl. In the fourth round, world leader Dylan Armstrong took the lead with a 21.64, which held up as the leader until the final throw of the competition, when Storl threw a third personal best of 21.78 to take the win.

In 2013 it was revealed that Andrei Mikhnevich tested positive for a prohibited substance at the 2005 World Championships. Since this was his second offense, he was given a lifetime ban and all his results from August 2005 on were annulled. [1]
