Article source: Athletics


Poland's Konrad Bukowiecki in front of his home crowd broke the world junior shot put record and won gold medal at the opening day of the IAAF World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz.

The 19-year-old Bukowiecki already in his opening round took a big lead with throw of 22.46m before breaking  New Zealand's Jacko Gill's 23.00m  World Junior Record in round three. The gold medal at World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz was a perfect redemption for Bukowiecki  after he finished 4th at World Indoor Championships in Eugene in March and European Championships in Amsterdam last week. 

Romanian shot putter Andrei Toader with 22.30m national junior record throw took silver while the podium concluded USA's Bronson Osborn, who set a new personal best of 21.27m.

Meanwhile in the women's 10,000m race walk China's  Zhenxia Ma took the gold in a new Junior World lead of 45:18.18 followed by Italy's Noemi Stella (45:23.85) and Ethiopian race walker Yehualeye Beletew in third in 45:33.69.
