New Zealand shot putter Tom Walsh's hot form continues.

Walsh has won a meeting in Poland, a day after the Rio bronze medallist beat the Olympic champion to win the Diamond League in Paris.

Walsh hurled the shot 21.48 metres to beat the USA's Ryan Whiting and Polish double Olympic champion Tomas Majewski.

On Sunday, Walsh set a personal best and New Zealand record with a throw of exactly 22 metres as he edged American Ryan Crouser in Paris, now he's won at a meet in Warsaw, to record back to back victories in Europe.
