The former world javelin champion Tero Pitkamäki won the Diamond League meet held in Stockholm. After a disappointing 5th place finish in London he took the end of his career under consideration. His winning throw was now measured beyond 85 meters – 86.98m. A throw that would have granted him the brightest award in London.
Second was Viteszlav Vesely with 83.74m. It was not much of a solace for Vesely who was first out of podium in London.
