2005 10th IAAF World Championships - Helsinki - Women's Hammer Throw

 

 

Host City: Helsinki, Finland Format: Qualifying round (70.00 or top 12 to final) (Aug 10)
Dates: 6–14 August 2005
Nations participating: 196
Athletes participating: 1,891
    Main venue: Helsinki Olympic Stadium
Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
The medallists from Paris – Moreno, Kuzenkova and Montebrun – were again favoured to win the medals, though new world record holder Lysenko was clearly a contender. These four were the leading qualifiers. The opening three rounds of the final were low-key, with Moreno (70.88) leading from Kuzenkova (70.70) and Lysenko (70.30). Montebrun – in sixth place at halfway – warmed things up by taking the lead with DOHA 2019  PAST RESULTS/WORLD CHAMPS WOMEN’S HT 343 71.41 in round four. In the next round the tall, athletic (1.86/81Kg) Lysenko reached 72.46, to be overtaken immediately by Kuzenkova (74.03) and Moreno (73.08). The Olympic Champion increased her lead over the double World Champion, throwing 75.10 in the last round, her best for five years, while Moreno responded with 73.04.
 Almost eight years later, in March 2013, the winner was exposed as a drug cheat when it was announced that a re-analysis of her Helsinki doping control sample – using the most up-to-date analytical techniques – had revealed an adverse finding. Besides being suspended in 2013-2015, all her results for two years from August 2005 were disqualified, starting with those in Helsinki. Moreno therefore became a triple champion, and ultimately one of the all-time greats across all individual women’s events at the World Championships: three golds, one silver and two fourths.
 The Women's Hammer Throw event at the 2005 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium on August 10 and August 12. The qualification standard was set at 70.00 metres or at least the best 12 qualified for the final round.

Event Report - Women Hammer Throw Final

Kuzenkova at Last
At the fourth time of asking Olga Kuzenkova RUS finally hauled in the gold medal with defending champion Yipsi Moreno CUB in silver and the new world record record holder Tatyana Lysenko RUS in bronze.

It took some time for the medal places to become clear though. First you destroy the cage then throw 70 metres or you throw 70m then destroy the cage. Lysenko and Kuzenkova were taking it in turns, but were still having to give best to Moreno after the first three throws with just 58 centimetres separating them with the Cuban on top.

Then into the ring stepped Manuela Montebrun FRA. You often wonder what difference it makes when an enormous racket is being created on the far side of the stadium. Yelena Isinbayeva RUS had just set a vault world record and the stadium erupted one of those in a deep Finnish roars. Maybe it inspired the Frenchwoman because instead of flinching she flung the implement out to a leading 71.41m then consolidated in the next round with another 71m.

But then the Russian artillery arrived. Up stepped Lysenko and pulled out a 72.46. Chin deep in her track suit top, Montebrun have a nervous phew. Next it was Kuzenkova’s turn. Olympic champion, she has never won this title, finishing second on three occasions, but it is not for want of trying. Six turns and the hammer flew out to 74.03. Gold was in touching distance.

Moreno had been the early pacesetter and was not prepared to take this lying down. Defending champion and second to Kuzenkova in the Athens Games last year she entered the circle psyching herself up with endless chatter. Whatever she was saying it seemed to work and she went into silver with 73.08.

The attack was all to no avail, though, as Kuzenkova sealed victory with a final throw and season’s best of 75.10 and world gold was finally hers.

Event Report - Women Hammer Throw Qualification

World record holder Tatyana Lysenko RUS was first to qualify for Friday’s final with a 71.14 metre heave, well over the 70-metre qualifying mark. All the big guns were to follow her but for the shock exception of Volha Tsander BLR, sixth in the Olympics, who fell short of her second longest throw in the world ever from earlier this summer by almost 10 metres.

But there were no doubts about the other medal candidates. Olympic champion Olga Kuzenkova RUS needed two throws, but then sailed over 71m for the second longest of the day.

In group A defending champion Yipsi Moreno CUB followed Lysenko into the circle and indulged in some one-upmanship by outgunning the Russian with the longest throw of the day, 72.67. Both then headed for the changing rooms, the Russian holding on to her woollen hat as both were lashed by the wind and rain.  As you may already have heard as nauseam, this was not a day for the fainthearted.

Manuela Montebrun FRA, bronze in Paris two years ago, but still nursing her wounds from the Olympics where for the second time in succession she failed to get past the qualifying rounds, passed the test this time with 71.63.

Sydney Olympic champion at the age of 17, Kamila Skolimowska POL, was the fifth and final athlete to qualify directly with 70.28.

Amongst the big names to get through with a small “q” were former world champion and six-time world record holder Mihaela Melinte ROM and Erin Gilreath USA who increased her personal best this season to a respectable 73.87 for tenth on the all-time list. Mind you, eight women above her in that list are in the final.
