Overview by IAAF  
In the absence of Helsinki winner Menéndez (injured) Obergföll was a strong favourite, having produced the top seven throws of 2007. The German was less than impressive in the qualifying, managing 60.77, while the qualifiers were led by the Czech duo of Brejchová and Špotáková. The latter was just warming up, as she opened in the final with a Czech record of 66.40. Obergföll reacted well, finishing off round one with 64.01, before improving to 65.26 in the next round. At this point no-one else had managed to reach 62m, which Brejchová rectified with her third round 63.73, inspired perhaps by Špotáková’s further improvement to 67.07. Nerius, in her sixth final, produced her first 60m throw of the competition in round four – 64.42 – which would prove enough to secure her third world championship medal. Her teamDOHA 2019  PAST RESULTS/WORLD CHAMPS WOMEN’S JT 349 mate Obergföll saved her best till last, coming within a metre of Špotáková with 66.46.
