Keshorn Walcott had the longest toss in the javelin throw, earning Trinidad and Tobago its first ever medal in the field portion of the Olympics and only its second gold in any event.
Trinidad and Tobago is no stranger to track and field success - the Caribbean nation, like many others, has had sprint success - ever wonder where track commentator Ato Bolden hails from? - but that's always been limited to the "track" part of "track and field", as the country had never taken a medal in any non-running athletics event. It's also the first gold for the T-and-T since Hasely Crawford won the 100m in 1976.
Walcott's toss changes that: his throw went 84.58 meters - a national record - and eclipsed a throw of 84.51 meters by Ukraine's Oleksandr Pyatnytsya.
Here's how the podium looked:
Gold: Keshorn Walcott, Trinidad and Tobago
Silver: Oleksandr Pyatnytsya, Ukraine
Bronze: Antti Ruuskanen, Finland
