The first round leader in Berlin was Maria Maria Kwaśniewska (POL) with 41.80 (137-1¾). Fleischer took over in the second round with a mark that would have won the gold medal (44.69 (146-7½)), although she surpassed it in round five with 45.18 (148-2¾). Krüger’s silver medal was sealed in round three with 43.29 (142-0½). Bauma placed fourth but would return in 1948 to win gold and also set two world records in 1947-48.
