Estonian javelin thrower Magnus Kirt defended himself in the strong win of the competition at the Athletics meeting in Turku. The bronze medalist of the European Championships in Berlin played 88.32 meters and won two Olympic winners. The second was, as last year's German Thomas Röhler with a performance of 86.33 and the third was Keshorn Walcott of Trinidad and Tobago for an hour of 86.09.
Kirt was four inches behind his performance last year at Paavo Nurmi Games and a straight subway behind his peak this year from another Finnish town in Vantaa.
Like its rivals, it again tried in vain the original prize that the organizers in Turku announced. To overcome the best performance in Finland, which has been keeping Aki Parviainen for 20 years for 20 years, darts can reach one of the islands around Turku.
This year for the first time they were equally motivated by discuskers who, however, lagged behind Mac Wilkins' 70.98-meter performance in Helsinki in 1980. The winner of the competition was Jamaican Fedrick Dacres, who played 66.74 . Major favorite and possible fan to get the island The Swede Daniel Stahl has three invalid attempts.
Filip Šnejdr finished fourth in the 800 meters, Kristiina Mäki was the sixth in the fifteen.
