ROME, Italy:
Commonwealth champion O'Dayne Richards was once again left disappointed after finishing seventh in the Shot Put at the Golden Gala Rome Diamond league inside the Stadio Olimpico.

Richards managed a best of 20.13m and says he will be studying his series to see what has been hampering his distances.

"It can be discouraging but I now have to go back and look at the tape and see what has been preventing me from consistently throwing in the 20.50m region and beyond," said Richards.

The event was won by David Storl, who threw 21.46m with Jordan Clarke, 21.28m and Tomas Stank, 20.64m taking second and third positions.
