Shotput champion Tom Walsh settles for bronze
New Zealand shotputter Tom Walsh says he wouldn't change the way he approached yesterday's final at the Athletics World Champs despite having to settle for a bronze medal by just 1 centimetre. Walsh looked set for back-to-back titles after a huge throw of 22.90 metres in the first round in Doha. But a personal best wasn't quite enough, as American Joe Kovacs produced the third best shot put of all-time with his final throw to snatch the gold medal by the slimmest of margins. Tom Walsh told RNZ sports reporter Clay Wilson that he enjoyed the challenge.
