Women Hammer Throw - History

Kuzenkova was the favourite and started well with 70.43 in qualifying then 70.61 in the first round of the final. She followed up with a 69.94, but she had no response when Moreno flung her hammer out to 70.65 in third round. In the meantime, Eagles had filled third place at 68.87.
Observers raved about Moreno’s technique. The 20 year-old Cuban prepared before each throw by making four circles with her right index finger. In rounds 3, 4 and 5 Kuzenkova fouled and there were no changes in the medal positions. After her and the competition’s final throw of 66.95, Moreno rushed toward the track to celebrate but was restrained from doing so as the women’s 10,000m had reached its closing stages.
