PRAGUE – World bronze medalist Koji Murofushi posted a commanding victory in the men’s hammer throw at the Prague International on Monday, winning his fourth title in as many events participated this season.
Murofushi, the only thrower who cleared the 80-meter mark, was called for a foul in his first toss but measured 81.92 in his fourth attempt to outperform second-place Krisztian Pars of Hungary (79.59) and Olli-Pekka Karjalainen of Finland (78.80), who took third.
“It was good that I was able to relax out there. I was able to accomplish my personal goals today.
It’s important not to get tense,” said Murofushi, who set a national record of 84.86 meters in the meet last year.
