Kanter takes 50 000€, Harting a bag of chocolate

Diamond League meet in Zürich was held yesterday. It was a final for discus throwers and turned out as surprise.

Gerd Kanter won with his best this year 67.02m and jackpotted to 50000$.  Robert Harting was second with 66.83m. "I am not angry, at least my bag is full on chocolate" he said.

Kanter was obviously happy: "I got my time off after Moscow and focused on training. I expected something like that, it was a positive surprise for everybody."

Ehsan Hadadi was third with 66.03m.

... 4. Martin Wierig 65.51m
5. Erik Cadée 63.81m
