Legendary ISTAF meet was held in Berlin and young Austrian discus thrower Lukas Weißhaidinger took an impressive win on the Olympic Stadium. Weißhaidinger threw his lifetime second best throw in the first round and nobody could answer.
Piotr Malachowski was really close to be left out of top8 and last 3 attempts, but showed some good nerves and managed to achieve it. He threw 65.39m and got second position. Robert Harting got third with his first round 63.23m.
They were followed by Robert Urbanek 62.74m, Gerd Kanter 62.61m, Martin Kupper 62.51m, Benn Harradine 61.04m, Alin Firfirica 59.54m and Rio2016 bronze medallist was left with 9th position and 59.07m.
Some other results from the weekend:
Gerd Kanter also competed in Kohila, Estonia this Sunday and won the meet with 62.86m.
Daniel Stahl won the Finnkamppen this Saturday with 65.46m. Interesting fact was that Frantz Kruger competed also there and threw 59.25m - that is impressive to throw almost 60m after 5 years not competing and training as professional.
