There is a new edition of the duel we saw at the 2012 World Championships in Moscow. Again, it looks like it will be Ryan Whiting versus David Storl and everyone else throwing for bronze. The defending champion from the USA has demonstrated he’s at the top of his form with his 22.23m (72′ 11″) at the US Championships and […]
