Keshorn Walcott, the 2012 Olympic champion, on Thursday added the 2018 CAC javelin title to his growing resume, and he did it in dramatic fashion.

The 25-year-old Trinidadian produced the winning throw of 84.47m on his final throw to snatch the gold medal that seemed destined to be hung around the neck of Grenada’s Anderson Peters. It is his first CAC javelin title.

Peters had assumed the lead on his fourth throw of 81.80ms and seemed destined for the gold medal after he overtook Walcott, the 2016 Olympic bronze medalist who had opened with a throw of 81.78m.

The bronze medal went to David Carreon Manriquez of Mexico who had a best effort of 76.27m.
