Discus thrower Čeh wins gold at World Athletics Championships

By: P.T., STA

Discus thrower Kristjan Čeh won the gold medal at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, US on Tuesday, with a throw of 71.13 metres, which is the best throw at world championships ever.

The 23-year-old from Ptuj is the second winner of the gold medal at world championships in athletics for Slovenia after Primož Kozmus in the men’s hammer throw in Berlin in 2009. “I set the goal before the competition to throw over 70 m and the championships record. I threw over 71 m, and then I wanted more,” Čeh, wrapped up in a Slovenian flag, told reporters. He is now aiming to break the world record (74.08 m), achieved in 1986.
