Thomas-Dodd settles for silver in women's shot put Featured

By Sports Desk August 03, 2022 884

Jamaica's Danniel Thomas-Dodd failed to successfully defend her Commonwealth Shot-Put title but captured a hard-earned silver medal in Birmingham on Wednesday.

After an event-leading 18.98, registered in the third round, Thomas-Dodd seemed set to successfully defend her title.  It was not to be, however, as Canadian Sarah Mitton registered a massive 19.03 to take the lead in the sixth and final round.

With one throw to go, Thomas-Dodd could not find a response.  Maddison-Lee Wesche of New Zealand was third in 18.84.  Another Jamaican in the field, Lloydricria Cameron, finished just outside the medals in 17.62.
