  • September 17th, 2008

On the first day of the IAAF/VTB Bank World Athletics Final in Stuggart, Germany, saw Czech Olympic and World Javelin Champion Barbora Spotakova setting a new world record in the women’s Javelin event

Her 72.28m effort during the first round of throw even surprised herself.

The 27-year-old upsets the local favorite Christine Obergföll, who could only muster a 63.28m for second placing

Barbora is now US$100,000 richer with her world record distance prize money.

She was the last year world champion also and recent Beijing 2008 gold medalist.

For your info she was was a former heptathlete in her early career, with a credible fourth finish at the 2000 World Junior Championships before finally found her calling in javelin
