SummaryEdit

The automatic qualification to the final was 84.00 metres. One and done, on his first throw Johannes Vetter beat that by over 5 metres with an 89.35m. In the second group, world leader Magnus Kirt took two attempts to make his mark of 88.36m. Either of those throws would have won the final easily.

In the final, only four men got over 80 metres in the first round, Anderson Peters took the lead with 86.69 m (284 ft 4 34 in). In the second round, Vetter and Kirt got respectable marks with 85.37m and 86.21m respectively. From that point, nobody would improve. Fourth place Lassi Etelätalo was almost 3 metres off the podium. In the fourth round, Peters duplicated his winning first round throw with another 86.69m. #8 in the world rankings coming in, Peters took gold.
