Eucharia Iyiazi wins gold in shot put at 2022 CWG

Eucharia Iyiazi has won gold in the women’s F55-57 shot put final at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Iyiazi threw a new Commonwealth Games record of 10.03m on Saturday which happened to also be her season-best performance.

The paralympian’s third and fourth attempts saw her with 9.54m and 9.65m throws while her fifth — which turned out to be the highest — won her the gold medal.

Her compatriot Ugochi Alam won bronze in the same event on Saturday. She grabbed bronze with a throw of 9.30m.

Cameroon’s Arlette Fokoa won the silver medal.

Iyiazi has competed at four paralympics taking two gold, a silver and two bronze medals.
