Russia’s Tatyana Lysenko added Olympic hammer gold to her world title Friday, nailing the Olympic record with a huge throw.

Lysenko threw the hammer 78 meters 28 centimeters, breaking Aksana Miankova’s record from the Beijing Olympics by almost two meters.

Second place went to Poland’s former world champion Anita Wlodarczyk, who also broke the old Olympic record with a 77.60 meter throw on her last attempt.

Zhang Wenxui won her second bronze in successive Olympics for China with 76.34 meters.

Germany’s Betty Heidler saw her world record of 79.42 meters left untouched, but threw well below her best and was forced to settle for eighth.
