At the “Anhalt meeting 2016” in Dessau discus thrower, Christoph Harting increased his personal best to 68,06m and left World Champion Piotr Malachowski behind.
The crowd at the Anhalt meeting was startled several times by Christoph Harting, because whenever his discus landed beyond the Olympic standard (65.00 m), the pyrotechnics went off. This happened in all his valid attempts. In the sixth round, the eighth of the World Championships had then gained the full attention of the stadium and thanked it with a throw of 68.06 meters. That meant the best performance and victory over world champion Piotr Malachowski (Poland; 66.52 m).
In an interview, Christoph Harting did not assess his performance. Christoph Harting would leave this summer to speak only by his performance. Stadium commentator Wolf-Dieter Poschmann brought the 25th-year-old to say something into the microphone. “You’ve made the terrific atmosphere,” the German champion thanked the audience and was celebrated.

In Javelin was the best for last: Lars Hamann was already established as the winner when he hurled his implement in the sixth attempt to 85.67 meters. “I just listened to my coach and went full on it,” the World Champion finalists of last year, the third as DLV athlete Olympic standard (83.00 m) thereby fulfilled in this discipline explained.
In his race comeback, Matthias de Zordo remained without a valid test. “I am disappointed, I could not show what has been indicated in the training,” said the world champion of 2011 who had previously suffered almost to the day exactly three years in the competition a tear of the Achilles’ tendon.
