World Youth Championships Girls Hammer Throw Results

984cfd35-de36-4189-af24-beca3c9db8a1World leader Sofiya Palkina of Russia came out on top in a close girl’s hammer final at the World Youth Championships on Saturday. With little more than one meter separating the first four throwers, no one felt secure in the competition. Palkina started out the competition in fourth place while France’s Melissa Coquilaas took the early lead. In round two Palkina jumped ahead by a matter of inches and then improved again to 67.82 meters in round three to giver herself some breathing room. But she could hardly relax. Ningyu Shang of China threw a personal best in round four, and then Deniz Yaylaci broke 67 meters for the first time in her life in the final round. But in the end Palkina held on to the win with Yaylaci getting silver and bronze going to Shang.
