Nigeria’s Goodness Chiemerie Nwachukwu has clinched Gold in the final of the women’s Discus Throw F42-44/61-64 event in the ongoing XXII Commonwealth Games holding in Birmingham.
The 23-year-old threw 34.84m to set a new World Record in her first attempt, then threw 36.56m in her second attempt to eclipse her previous world record.
She came close to smashing another with a 36.31m and 36.38m in her 3rd and 5th attempts respectively.
However, her second attempt (36.56m) did the job to produce Gold in style.
Australia’s Sarah Edmiston (Silver: 34.96m) and Fiji’s Naibili Vatunisolo (Bronze: 23.70m) also scored podium finishes.
