Vili beaten again

7:48 am on 6 August 2010

The Belarussian shot-putter Nadezhda Ostapchuk has beaten Valerie Vili again, this time at the latest Diamond League meeting in Stockholm.

Ostapchuk threw 20.63 metres, while Vili had a best of 19.79 metres.

Vili, the world and Olympic champion, changed coaches this year and has tweaked her action slightly.

She has yet to beat her great rival in a competition this year.

Meanwhile world junior shot put champion Jacko Gill of Auckland has won an age group competition at the same meeting.
