Wlodarczyk blasts out 75.13m release in Dakar
It was World Hammer Throw champion Anita Wlodarczyk who lived up to expectations here in Dakar, with a dominant performance in the Senegalese capital this afternoon at the Meeting Grand Prix IAAF de Dakar - IAAF World Challenge meeting.
But the Polish World record holder didn’t have it all her own way as Moldova’s 23-year-old Marina Marghieva was near her own national record (72.53m – 2009) with a second round 71.14m which briefly challenged Wlodarczyk who had opened with a 73.29m heave. If Wlodarczyk had been worried she didn’t show it, bagging the win with a mighty 75.13m in the following round. Game over!
* Mulaudzi, also a victor as expected; Badji delights locals
* Volcanic upset
* Montsho keeps in the groove
* Clarke and Brooks – Jamaican sprinting remains on top
* Bekele defeated again
