The Olympic Champion Gerd Kanter won the Diamond League final in Brussel held today. His best throw was measured 66.84m. As the main rivals for overall victory and 40,000$ gave up the competition it was easier for Kanter, although the German young talent Martin Wierig was putting up a fight with 66.05m.
Of course, Kanter´s main rivals Ehsan Hadadi and Robert Harting, were just theoretical danger to Kanter.
Virgilijus Alekna, the only possible treat for Kanter´s overall victory today was 3rd with 65.78m.
