Event Report Women Shot Put Final

The women's Shot Put final was dominated by Eastern Europeans this evening, with the victor being world leader, Svetlana KRIVELYOVA (RUS) with a distance of 20.63m.
 
The 1992 Olympic champion set up an early lead and whilst the gold medal was by no means secured, Krivelyova improved with each throw in the first three rounds, stretching out to a 27cm lead by the half way mark.

Her fourth round put sailed out to 20.63m, 14cm below her season's best, to make victory look more certain.
 
The battle for the silver medal was much less predictable, with Belarussian Nadezhda OSTAPCHUK and Vita PAVLYSH(UKR) outdoing each other in each round.

First it was the 2001 World Championship bronze medallist, Pavlysh, throwing a season's best 20.03m to overtake Ostapchuk in the third round. Answering the challenge, the leading qualifier Ostapchuk, put a personal best of 20.12m two rounds later to clinch silver.

Pavlysh, who returned from a two-year ban in 2001, had to settle for bronze when she improved only slightly, with a fifth round effort of 20.08m.
 
Landing a fair distance behind the medallists was another Russian, Irina KORZHANENKO (19.17m) and New Zealand youngster Valerie ADAMS. The talented Kiwi recorded 18.65m early and briefly held second position, but could not sustain any momentum going into the final three rounds.

Event Report Women Shot Put Qualification

For the first time in ten years the women's World Championship shot put final will not feature German star, Astrid KUMBERNUSS.
 
The three-time World champion had three throws in the qualifying rounds that were well short of the automatic qualifying mark of 18.40m. Her best distance of 17.83m only placed her 15th, three away from the cut-off.
 
Had she been able to go another 15cm she would have secured a spot in her sixth World Championship final.
 
Germany will still be represented though, with 1999 and 2001 silver medallist, Nadine KLEINERT, progressing to the final with her first round effort of 18.85m.
 
Of the automatic qualifiers, Belarussian Nadezhda OSTAPCHUK was impressive, throwing 19.56m on her first attempt. The next best mark was Ukraine's Vita PAVLYSH, bronze medallist at the last World Championships, with 19.00m.
 
Current world number one, Svetlana KRIVELYOVA (RUS) made it safely through to the final with a first round distance of 18.66m. She will be joined by team-mate and world number two, Irina KORZHANENKO (18.69m).
