1999 7th IAAF World Championships - Seville - Women's Hammer Throw

Athletes participating: 1821
    Main venue: Estadio Olímpico
Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
As with the women’s pole vault in Seville, this new event produced a splendid winning performance. No world record here but Melinte came close to her pending mark of 75.97 with a series which climaxed with 75.20, at the time the third longest ever throw. She thought that, but for the heat, she might have thrown one or two metres further. Kuzenkova, the event’s previous trail blazer, smashed her first effort into the netting but worked her way through to a final round 72.56, the longest ever non-winning mark. There was a huge gap after them but it was encouraging for the small nations that the bronze should go to a native of American Samoa, the US-based Misipeka. Last of the 21 competitors with her only valid throw of 50.38 was 16 year-old Skolimowska … winner of the Olympic title a year later with 71.16!
 These are the official results of the Women's Hammer Throw event at the 1999 IAAF World Championships in Athletics in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 21 participating athletes, with the final held on Tuesday 24 August 1999 at 18:00h.

Women Hammer Throw Final

World record holder, Romanian Mihaela Melinte, became the first champion in the women's hammer in history of the competition. On the last round, Melinte threw 75.20, the second all-time best, only 67 shy of her own world record. Melinte, gave no options to her closest rival, Russian Olga Kuzenkova, who was second with 72.56. The Romanian dominated the competition since her first throw (71.57), to improve later again in the second (73,23) and in the third (74.21) rounds. Kuzenkova, after a foul and a second of 68.18, broke the 70 metres barrier in the third (71.79). Her best effort came in the sixth round with 72.56. The third , from American Samoa, was Lisa Misipeka, 1999 US university champion, who beat Hungarian Katalin Divos, Australian Debbie Sosimenko and Belarus' Lyudmila Gubkina.
