Croatian athlete Sandra Perkovic won the gold medal at the European Championships in discus throwing for the sixth time.

Perkovic won the gold at the European Championships in Munich with a throw of 67,95 meters in the fifth series, while German women Christine Pudenz took second and third place with a throw of 67,87 meters and Claudine Vita with 65.20 meters.


This was Perkovic's sixth straight gold medal at the European Championships, her streak started at the Barcelona 2010 European Championships, followed by triumphs at the Helsinki 2012 European Championships, Zurich 2014, Amsterdam 2016 and Berlin 2018.

This is the second gold medal for Croatia at the European Championships in Munich after Fran Mihalevic won the shot put gold medal yesterday.
