Overview by IAAF   EDMONTON STADIUM 
Kuzenkova was the favourite and started well with 70.43 in qualifying then 70.61 in the first round of the final. She followed up with a 69.94, but she had no response when Moreno flung her hammer out to 70.65 in third round. In the meantime, Eagles had filled third place at 68.87. Observers raved about Moreno’s technique. The 20 year-old Cuban prepared before each throw by making four circles with her right index finger. In rounds 3, 4 and 5 Kuzenkova fouled and there were no changes in the medal positions. After her and the competition’s final throw of 66.95, Moreno rushed toward the track to celebrate but was restrained from doing so as the women’s 10,000m had reached its closing stages.
 The final of the Women's Hammer Throw event at the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada was held on Tuesday August 7, 2001. There were a total number of 34 participating athletes. The qualifying rounds were staged on Monday August 6, with the mark set at 67.00 metres.

  Final
Women's Hammer Throw final-Marteau f. finale
Cuba won it's second Edmonton gold in the women's hammer throw tonight when Yipsi MORENO matched Osleidys MENENDEZ's feat from the women's javelin final yesterday. Like MENENDEZ (who threw a championships record), she also did it in style, with a new national and area record of 70.65m.
Tonight's final looked as if it might have begun and ended in just one throw when Olympic silver medallist Olga KUZENKOVA of Russia, the second thrower of the first round, launched the hammer to a mighty 70.61m. Four of the six women who had thrown over 70 metres this summer were in tonight's final. KUZENKOVA is the season's leader (73.62m), but the other two top women were missing - Katalin DIVOS (70.69m) and Dawn ELLERBE (70.62m) - so it was going to be hard for anyone in the final to surpass the Russian's opener.
Of the remaining 70m throwers in the final, Cuba's Yipsi MORENO (70.41m), fourth in Sydney, threw a promising 69.55m with her first. While Manuela MONTEBRUN (70.28m) of France, the European Under 23 champion, released her first attempt to just 67.78m. Bronwyn EAGLES of Australia, who only days before in Calgary had set a new Oceanian and Commonwealth record of 70.19m, threw 67.62m with her first throw. She improved to 68.87m with her second attempt, which ultimately was good enough for bronze.
Also in the second round, KUZENKOVA backed up her lead with a good 69.94m, although MORENO threatened by throwing over 69m again (69.34m). The next throw by the Cuban did more than threaten, as she launched the hammer five centimetres past the Russian's lead to 70.65m, a national and CAC area record.
European Cup winner Olga TSANDER of Russia (64.10m) and Germany's Olympic bronze medallist Kirsten MUNCHOW (64.39m) were two of the throwers not to proceed to the last three throws at this point.
Poland's Olympic champion Kamila SKOLIMOWSKA, who was in fourth place with 67.88m, improved her distance but not her position with her fourth attempt of 68.05m. MORENO's fourth was a pitiful 61.45m, the only blip in an otherwise strong series, while KUZENKOVA had a 70 metre foul in this round.
The Cuban returned to something like her previous standard with 68.84m and 66.95m in the final two rounds as did the Russian, who after a third consecutive foul in the fifth, finished with 69.78m.
KUZENKOVA who unexpectedly also had to settle for second in last year's Olympics, found herself again in the silver medal position. The Russian also took silver in the inaugural championships in 1999.

Women's Hammer qualifying report
The qualifying standard of 67m proved to be a long throw in the women’s hammer Monday afternoon.
In round A, only two women made the standard, Russia’s Olga KUZENKOVA, the silver medallist from Sydney, easily out threw her competition with a toss of 70.43m on her first attempt. Manuela MONTEBURN from France was next with a throw of 67.92m
Olympic and European bronze medallist Kirsten MUNCHOW from Germany proved she is still in medal contention with a throw of 65.89m.
American Melissa PRICE, 21, served notice that she could challenge with a throw of 65.65m. This is the first World’s Championship for PRICE after placing third in the USA outdoors championship and was the runner up in the NCAA.
It wasn’t a good day for Italy’s Ester BALASSINI. The national record holder couldn’t get the hammer out of the cage, fouling three straight times.
Also Mia STROMMER, the Finnish record holder ranked sixth in the world threw only 61.04m, and was well below her personal best of 69.63m.
In round B again two women automatically qualified.
Bronwyn EAGLES from Australia had the second best showing of the day with a throw of 68.35m on her first attempt. The Commonwealth and Oceania record holder will enter the finals behind only KUZENKOVA.
The surprise gold medallist from Sydney Kamila SKOLIMOWSKA from Poland also qualified automatically on her first throw with a distance of 67.43m.
Fourth place in Sydney, Cuba’s Yipsi MORENO is also in contention after her throw of 66.60m, however, that’s well below her personal and season best of 70.41m.
The 1999 European under 23 champion Florence EZEH of France also qualified with a throw of 65.71m.
Susanne KEIL of Germany had thrown 68.07m this year, but after throwing 64.06m on her first attempt, she fouled her last two and didn’t qualify.
