Sunday’s hammer throw final was top notch. Not only Wojciech Nowicki, but also m.in. Canadian Ethan Katzberg and it was he who became the unexpected world champion. The aforementioned contestant in his best attempt sent the hammer a distance of 81.25m (Canadian record) and it was a result no one could beat.
Wojciech Nowicki, who scored 81.02m, had to settle for “only” silver, and bronze was won by a representative of the hosts – Bence Halasz (80.82m). Paweł Fajdek also added “iron” at the 80m limit, which allowed him to take 4th place.
