SummaryEdit

In the absence of world record holder Anita Włodarczyk, who has dominated hammer throwing since 2012, this was the first major championship opportunity for someone else. With the defending champion recovering from knee surgery,[2] world leader DeAnna Price seized the opportunity on the second throw of the competition with a 76.87m that nobody would beat all day, except Price, who threw her best of 77.54 m (254 ft 4 in) in the third round. The next thrower into the ring was Włodarczyk's Polish teammate Joanna Fiodorow, who tried to pick up the slack, throwing her personal best 76.35m which dominated everybody else. Zalina Petrivskaya's first throw of the competition was dropped to third place after the first three throwers. She maintained that position until the middle of the fifth round when Wang Zheng's 74.76m grabbed bronze.
