Discus throw Ice Weißhaidinger in third place

From an Austrian point of view, discus thrower Lukas Weißhaidinger came third. With 65.67 metres, the Olympian landed in a strong field behind Swedish world champion and world number one Daniel Stahl and Slovenian Christian See.

The discus decision was made for ranks 1-3 at the sixth attempt in a final playoff match. There Weißhaidinger only reached 61.03 meters, while Stahl and Ceh threw the disc at 65.72 meters each. Weisshaidinger already showed his best litter of the day with 65.67m. Stahl (68.65) and Ceh (66.68) were also stronger than their last attempt. Weißhaidinger, who came to Oslo straight from training, will return to the Diamond League on Sunday – and then in Stockholm.

“I’m really happy, personally I wasn’t expecting third place in first and over 65 metres. Recently – with a goal for the Olympics in Tokyo – we really pushed the training for two weeks. I feel like it did,” Weißhaidinger said.

Coach Gregor Hoegler commented: “Former world champion Andrios Godzius and vice world champion Federic Dacres touched down on the undefeated court today. That suits us three weeks before Tokyo.”
