Poland’s Anita Wlodarczyk Improves Own Hammer World Record

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – (IAAF) – Poland’s Anita Wlodarczyk added more than a metre to her own world record* when she threw 82.29m at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on Monday (15).

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – (IAAF) – Poland’s Anita Wlodarczyk added more than a metre to her own world record* when she threw 82.29m at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on Monday (15).

Wlodarczyk improved by 1.21m on the mark of 81.08m she set last year on home soil in Cetniewo.

It was a stunning competition by the 2015 world champion, who also took the silver medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Following a relatively modest opener, at least for her, of 76.35m, Wlodarczyk broke the Olympic record with her second round effort of 80.40m before getting the world record with her following throw.

After a foul in the fourth round, she reached 81.74m, also in excess of her former world record, with her fifth throw before finishing off her series with 79.60m.
