Kelsey-Lee BARBER - Australia - 2019 World javelin champion with her last throw!

Kelsey-Lee Barber was in bronze medal position when she stepped up

to take her final throw. What a time to add three metres to your previous

best in the competition. Bang !  66.56 metres and the gold medal awaiting.

With Lu Huihui in contention (PB of 67.98m) nothing was certain, but the two

Chinese throwers could not match the moment.  Kelsey-Lee went wild (as George's

images show) and the rest is history. Lui Shiying, who was leading, is the athlete behind

Kelsey-Lee and her expression tells it all (image top left).
