Meanwhile, shot put silver medal winner Kobe Lawrence and Christopher Young will be in the discus final and Machaeda Linton in the triple jump final.

Linton made a hop-skip-jump into the women’s triple jump final with a personal best of 13.06 meters. Sharifa Davronova (UZB) and Anna Grafin Keyserlingk (GER) lead the way with 13.24.

“It feels great knowing I have not trained a lot for this event. But I came out here to have fun as well as to compete. It’s a tremendous feeling.”

Lawrence threw 57.18 meters, the tenth best of the preliminary round, and Young’s 56.74 meters was good enough to mean that both men reached the medal round.

Young, who had to wait to find out his position, said he would be “very happy to get into the final.”

Mykhailo Brudin of Ukraine leads the qualifiers with a 61.47-meter personal best. Four others – Mika Sosna (GER), 61.00 meters, Dimitrios Pavlidis (GRE) 60.73 meters, Marius Karges (GER) 60.69 and Kevin Grubbs (USA) 60.29 have throws over 60 meters.
