The unstoppable Croatian discus queen, Sandra Perković, won another gold medal at IAAF Diamond League in Birmingham. After winning gold in London seven days ago, she now has the world lead, diamond league record, as well as the meeting record.

“I’m very happy to perform like that straight after a world championship. The conditions were very tricky – it was windy and cold, I didn’t feel like I could really produce a maximum performance today, it was pretty exhausting.
I was pleased to throw a 67m throw because I knew there were a lot of girls that threw well at the worlds that are capable of challenging me, but they were about three or four metres behind what they threw in London today.
My next competition is in Zagreb, my home town – it will be a very special occasion for me. I’m returning as Olympic and world champion so I bet they can’t wait to see me,” Sandra said.
We can’t wait to see what records Sandra will break at the 67th Hanžeković Memorial that will be held in Zagreb, August 28-29.
