HITCHON’S GREAT FORM
SOPHIE HITCHON took her seventh title with a championships record of 72.02m.
The Olympic medallist deconstructed her technique last autumn in search for future improvements and judging by her throwing on Sunday the changes seem to be working as she won by almost 10 metres from Jessica Mayho, who was returning from surgery in 2017.
Ever the perfectionist, though, Hitchon said: “I have still got a lot of things to work on. Still some hiccups in there, but we will get there.”
She added: “Sometimes when you change things it takes a while and do it every single time, which is where I am at the moment. Once I get some consistency I think it will be really good, but it might not happen this year. It’s more about longterm really.”
