Tero PitkamakiTero Pitkämäki is awake. Yesterday in Turku (Finland) at Paavo Nurmi Games, the javelin thrower shot his javelin very far in the last attempt.

The competition started immediately on top level: after the first round of throws six athletes had already reached the 80m mark, firsty by Pitkamaki with 85,08m. But in the third attempt the egyptian Ihab Abdelrahman overcame the finnish with a throw ending up at 85,50m (SB).

As in a fairy tale, the home hero took the lead just with the last attempt: the electronic table says “89,09m“, season best for the World Champion of Osaka 2007 (improved the 88,62m obtained in Doha) and second best performance of the year, just behing Julius Yego with 91,39m setted in Birmingham on 7 June.

Näin sitä keppiä lennätetään!

To notice in the same meeting Elijah Manangoi, winner of 1500m with 3’36″81 and Isiah Koech, first to finish the 5000m race in 13’08″94.

Last but not least in the hammer throw Pawel Fajdek with 80,71m and Denia Caballero with 65,17m in discus throw.
