Alright, lets calm a bit down after that massive world record by Anita Wlodarczyk at today’s competition. Next to Malachowski’s season best of 68.29m, and Anita’s world record of 81.08m there were other events taking place as well. Pawel Fajdek won the men’s hammer event with 82.07m, Tomas Majweski the men’s shot put with 20.78m. Marcin Krukowski the men’s javelin event 78.47m and Maria Andrejczyk the women’s javelin event 62.11m.
Of course, there are some other throwing events taking place as well. Besides the world leading throw of Malachowski, the world record by Anita Wlodarczyk some other throwing events produced also some good results.
