3rd of August brought massive emotions during the final of women's hammer throw event.
Anita Włodarczyk with the result of 78,48 m won the gold medal. Malwina Kopron won the bronze medal with the result of 75,49 m.
Both medal throws were performed with the use of Polanik Gold Hammer. These throws were not the only ones that were executed with our hammer because all contestants eagerly were taking out hammers.
Quoting one of the websites and paraphrasing words of Benjamin Franklin: In this world nothing can be said to be certain except death, taxes and Anita Włodarczyk's gold medal :)
Our champion did not disappoint, and she won the hammer throw event in Tokyo and with that, she became Olympic champion for the third time. We must mention that gold medals in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and in London 2012 were also won with Polanik hammers.
We congratulate Anita and Malwina as well as Joanna Fiodorow, who took 7th place in the event.
