The Belarussian Nadezhda Ostapchuk has clinched the inaugural Diamond League shot put title after winning the final round in Zurich.

Ostapchuk, who has dominated New Zealander Valerie Vili this year, again proved too strong with a throw of 20 point 63 metres, 61 cm further than Vili.

It is the 8th time this year Vili has been beaten by her great rival.

Vili now has a couple of events in Europe being setting her sights on the Delhi Commonwealth Games.
