Javelin thrower Cheng Chao-tsun (鄭兆村), who has already secured his ticket to the Tokyo Olympics next year, broke the championship record to take home a gold medal with a throw of 85.54 meters.
The 27-year-old Cheng said his coach would only allow him three throws because of a sore left foot caused by jogger's heel and he only took two of those.

The winning throw was a significant improvement on his recent efforts of 79.48 meters and 77.02 meters at events in October and November, respectively. [FULL STORY]
