After performing the required routine task of checking the implements, competition area and measuring tools, the IAAF announced on Saturday that the 82.98 metres effort from Anita Wlodarczyk is now legit.

Wlodarczyk produced the fresh standard at the Skolimowska Memorial in Warsaw on August 28, 2016, just shy of two weeks after she won the Olympic Games crown in Brazil.

The Polish thrower was improving the previous mark of 82.29m she used to win the gold medal in Rio de Janeiro on Aug 15 2016.

“I was saying that I want to improve the record and I was able to keep my word,” Wlodarczyk recalled after breaking the world record.

“Maybe I could have broken it in the first round but I like to improve step by step and play with the emotions.

“Yes, it was close to 83 meters, but let’s save something for the next season.”
