This year as well Ostrava hosted the Golden Spike, a part of IAAF World Challenge that will present us many interesting competitions. During this afternoon the hammer thrower competed, while tomorrow the track events will take place.
The Polish Pawel Fajdek who set the first throwing of the season over 80m reaching 80.66m, result that counts as WL. He threw many times over 78 m and, on the fifth throwing, the hammer reached 80m.
WL established by the Polish Anita Wlodarczyk who, with a throwing of 78.54m, set the Event Record as well.
