>Christina Obergfoll has gone down two meets in a row, does her Moscow gold say “So what?”
Eastern European stars Maria Abakumova and Tero Pitkämäki produced similar results in meets a mere 2 hour drive through the German countryside away. They both knocked out the furthest throws since 2011 on a pleasent Sunday afternoon.
Moscow silver medalist Pitkamaki pierced the Bad Kostritz soil at a cracking 89,03m (292′ 1″) to go clear of Germany’s David Golling three meter PB of 80.67m (264′ 8″).
The bronze and gold Moscow medalist went to Berlin’s western suburbs to match throws for the 2nd time in three days time, and the results were the same–Maria Abakumova topping Christina Obergfoll in front of the latter’s home crowd. Obergfoll’s 65.82m (215′ 11″) trailing Abakumova’s world’s best 69.75m ( 228′ 10″) by four meters. The DKB Cup had four of the top-five finishers from the World Championships, Australia’s Kathryn Mitchell finished third with 62.17m, just two centimeters ahead of Germany’s Linda Stahl.
I’d say they’d both trade their world bests for World gold… do you agreed?
