Alyona Shamotina won the women’s hammer title with a 66.05m effort in the fifth round.
As a young girl, Reka Gyuratz used to wander over to the Hammer training centre in her home town of Szombathely to watch the athletes go through their paces and sometimes compete. It proved to be an inspirational experience because she took up the event at the age of 13 and became the country’s latest global champion in Donetsk on Saturday.
The action came thick and fast on the penultimate evening session at the 2013 IAAF World Youth Championships, as Lazaro Martinez’s championship record-equalling leap in the Triple Jump was one of several highlights.
Some of the best head-to-heads at the 2013 IAAF World Youth Championships will happen in the girls’ events in Donetsk, with tight battles set to take place in the sprints, horizontal jumps and Hammer Throw.
