The competition featured men's and women's contests in shot put, discus throw, javelin throw and hammer throw. In addition to the senior competitions, there were also under-23 events for younger athletes. The first day of events was affected by poor weather, but Hungarian Olympic hammer thrower Krisztián Pars produced a series of throws over 79 metres, with a best of 79.84 m to win the men's event. Vira Rebryk won the under-23 women's javelin, while runner-up Liina Laasma broke the Estonian junior record.[2] On the second day, eighteen-year-old javelin thrower Zigismunds Sirmais won the men's senior gold medal with a world junior record mark of 84.47 m.[3] Turkey's Fatih Avan set a national record in the javelin to win in the under-23 section.
