It was the fourth rehearsal that Dongmo, champion of indoor Europe in the discipline, recorded the best throw of the day in the Diamond League competition, in which the victory was little in doubt.
Besides, she was the only one to launch above 19 meters, in a position chart organized by the last test: Dongmo made 18,16, the second classified, Jamaican Danniel Thomas-Dodd, managed 18,12, and the American Maggie Ewen made 16.96. The athlete was still far from the best world mark of the year, which she also reached, 19.65 meters, which she achieved in Karlsruhe, Germany, on January 29.
The Portuguese team thus reaches eight points, and leads the ranking of the Liga Diamante, after the first of four scoring events. In Gateshead, England, Portugal will have another European champion in action, in the case of Patrícia Mamona, in the triple jump.
