In a year which caused so much grief to Albanians there was a result from Seville which might have brought those people some pride and pleasure. Miréla Manjani no longer competes for Albania; now married to Greek weightlifter George Tzelílis she became a Greek citizen in 1997, but she made history by becoming the first Albanian-born athlete ever to win a world athletics title. Title holder Hattestad was delighted to take the lead in round 2 with 66.06 but later in the round Tzelíli went ahead with 66.33 and with her next throw she improved to a Greek record with the new implement of 67.09. Tatyana Shikolenko later produced a Russian record of 66.37 to push Hattestad down to third; her elder sister Natalya won this title for Belarus in 1995. European Champion Tanja Damaske was unable through injury to throw in the qualifying round.
