Betty Heidler set new Hammer Throw World Record

Betty Heidler of Germany set a new World record in the Hammer Throw on Saturday in Halle, Germany.

Heidler threw 79.42 metres to improve the previous mark of 78.30m, which was set by Poland’s World champion Anita Wlodarczyk in Bydgoszcz, Poland, in June last year.

The 27-year-old was in sensation form from the opening throw, where she went over 77m to better her very own national record.

Heidler won the IAAF World Championships gold medal in 2007, in Osaka, Japan.

Prior to Saturday’s event, Heidler’s best throw for the year was 74.72m.
