font size    

Tajik Dilshod Nazarov clinched his country's first ever gold medal at the Asian Games on Friday when he threw 74.43 meters to win the men's hammer throw final.

The withdrawal of Japanese Olympic champion Koji Murobushi had left the men's hammer throw competition wide open, and Nazarov, 24, made the winning throw at his penultimate attempt.

"I waited for this. I have been preparing for this for a long time," said Nazarov.

"This is a big victory for my country. It is the first gold medal we have ever won at the Asian Games in any sports," he added.

Ali Zenkawi of Kuwait grabbed the silver medal with a toss of 73.14m, while Japanese Hiroaki Doi had the bronze at 69.45m.
