STORY SCRIPT:

Argentina’s Sasia Nazareno won the first gold medal of Monday’s afternoon session of athletics at the Youth Olympic Park at Buenos Aires 2018.

The 17-year-old shot putter went into the day as the highest ranked from Friday’s sesion. He again could not be beaten, measured at 21.25, slightly down on his earlier distance but still good enough for gold in the Men’s Shot Put. Silver went to Jialiang Xing from China. Italy’s Alessandro Carmelo Musci won bronze.

Gold in the Women’s Hammer went to Valeriya Ivanenko of Ukraine. The 17-year-old threw 72.08m, Monday, to add to Friday’s throw in windier conditions of 74.90m. It put her well clear of her rivals on the aggregate system of scoring. Egypt’s Rawan Ayman-Ibrahim-Barakat won silver. Bronze went to Alegna Osorio Mayari from Cuba.

Ukraine also triumphed in the Men’s Hammer. Mykhaylo Kokhan, 17, threw 85.14m, down on 85.97 mark from Friday. There was little danger of anyone on the aggregate scoring system catching him though, putting out the longest throw of the second and final stage. Valentin Andreev from Bulgaria won silver, China’s Qi Wang bronze.

Later, high jumper Yaroslava Mahuchikh made it a golden treble for Ukraine. The 17 year old was the leading jumper on Friday going clear at 1.92m. She went higher in Stage 2, clearing 1.95, again the best jump of the session, ensuring gold. Mariya Kochanova won silver, Finland’s Jessica Kahara bronze.

Over at the Long Jump Cuba’s Lester Alcides Lescay-Gay won gold. He went into the day trailing Australia Joshua Cowley. But a second stage best jump of 7.89m was enough for the 17 year old score, despite Cowley managing a personal best of 7.82m. So Gold to Lescay-Gay, silver to Cowley and bronze for Japan’s Koki Wada.
