Stahl’s momentum continues
Daniel Stahl continued his winning ways in the discus, edging Andrius Gudzius, the man he succeeded as world champion, by 23 centimetres with a 67.31m effort. Gudzius led early, if briefly, delivering his 67.08m best effort in the third round. But Stahl responded well, wrestling away the lead in the next round to seal his 11th straight victory.
Wojciech Nowicki prevailed in what may end up being the finest gathering of hammer throwers on the planet this year. The three-time world bronze medallist took command in the fifth round with a 78.07m effort to take the lead from home favourite Bence Halasz who reached 78.00m in round four. Both fouled in the final round giving the Pole the win.
