So the Womens Discus event is over, next up was the Men’s Shot Put event. Among the startlist is no one less than the kiwi bronze medalist Tom Walsh from the Indoor World Championships. Since he won the bronze medal he’s been invited to stop by at some Diamond League meetings. The two time Olympic Champion Tomasz Majewski is still looking out for his shape and hopefully he will be able to get right on track for the European Championships in Zurich, Switzerland later this year.
It seems that Christian Cantwell is finally back after almost two years without any big numbers. After the first three rounds Cantwell was leading with 21,15m, followed by the next American Reese Hoffa who tossed the 7.26kg ball 21m. Joe Kovacs was placed 3rd with a throw of 20,97m after the first three rounds.
The last two rounds increased the tension with Reese Hoffa taking the lead with a massive toss of 21,64m. During the last round even Joe Kovacs overtook Christian Cantwell and tossed the 7.26kg ball 21,46m with Cantwell placing 3rd with his last round toss of 21,38m
