Konrad Bukowiecki Wins Men’s Shot Put World Indoor Tour In Madrid

Konrad Bukowiecki won the men’s shot put with a mark of 21.91m, which was the European leading mark and the meeting record.

Bukowiecki took the lead in the first round with a throw of 21.84 meters and improved his season-best to 21.91 meters in the fourth round. Filip Mihaljevic of Croatia, who won European Indoor bronze, came in second with 21.83m, only one centimeter short of his national indoor record.

Bukowiecki avenged his recent loss to Mihaljevic, who won their previous head-to-head match in Torun last week by only one cm with 21.84m.

Olympic fifth-place finisher Zane Weir of Italy missed his indoor PB by 10 cm with a time of 21.40m, defeating Italian indoor and outdoor champion Nick Ponzio, who broke the 21m barriers for the third time in a row with a time of 21.14m.

Konrad Bukowiecki: “I will compete at the Polish Championships in Torun next week before targeting a medal in Belgrade the week after. I am going there with one goal: to throw the furthest I can. I have good memories from Belgrade, being European Indoor champion. I just need to stay focused, do what I do and I hope I am going to throw far. I can’t wait for it”.
