Athletics: Sixth place for Leandro Ramos to close Portuguese presence in the Diamond League


Leandro Ramos, in the javelin throw, was the fifth and last Portuguese to get into action in the final of the Athletics Diamond League, which was held in Zurich, finishing the contest in sixth place.

Before, in the two days of competitions in Zurich, Pedro Pichardo was second in the men’s triple jump, while Auriol Dongmo, in weight, and Liliana Cá, in discus, were positioned in third position. More discreet, Patrícia Mamona closed the list of finalists in the women’s triple in sixth place.

Ramos threw only twice, with 71.96 meters in the first time and 66.51 in the second, not executing the other four throws he was entitled to.

India’s Neeraj Chopra, Olympic champion, won the contest with a throw at 88.44 at the second try, beating Czech Jakub Vadleich, with 86.94, and German Julian Weber, with 83.73.

Earlier, Liliana Cá closed her record contest in third place, in a competition that had the North American Valarie Allman as the winner.

The Portuguese pitcher was very regular and at a good level, with five pitches over 60 meters, scoring the best 63.34.

Allman, the current Olympic champion, won with 67.77 meters, with Croatian Sandra Perkovic very close – the defending European champion sent the disc at 67.31.
