At the Centro Deportivo Municipal Moratalaz Joe Kovacs beat Christian Cantwell and Cory Martin with a good throw of 21.22m. Cantwell placed second with 20.52m and Cory Marting 3rd with 20.43m. Apostolos Parellis won the discus competition with 60.79m.
After his recent defeat at the IAAF DL Meeting in Lausanne again David Storl, Kovacs placed first on the podium again. He won the competition in Madrid with strong 21.22m. He achieved his best attempt in the 5th round. Christian Cantwell tried to catch up and hit his best effort in the last attempt. Cory Martin threw 20.43m to be the 3rd on the podium just in front of Georgi Ivanov.
In the men’s discus event some big names were on the start list. The Sweden Daniel Stahl who has a personal best of 66m threw 60.26m to place second. The current world leader Jason Morgan was not able to get beyond the 60m mark and placed 4th. Let’s hope he will pick up where he left in June when he threw his world leading mark of 68m. Apostolos Parellis won the competition with 60.79m. Rodney Brown completed the podium with 59.85m. According to our sources the conditions were not that great so the rather weak throws are understandable.
