SOPOT, Poland: US shot putter Ryan Whiting retained his world indoor title in thrilling style on Friday (Saturday in Manila) as Nadine Broersen claimed the Netherlands’ first ever women’s pentathlon gold. In a gripping shot put contest, Whiting managed a best of 22.05 meters on his fourth attempt to finish 26cm ahead of Germany’s two-time outdoor champion David Storl, the early leader. New Zealand’s Tomas Walsh claimed a surprise bronze (21.26m) to break home hearts, as the hugely popular Tomasz Majewski finished 22cm short of the podium.
