The 25-year-old from Queensland threw remarkably consistently in the final on Saturday night, but he still came up short of the bronze medal.

He had five throws in the range of 65.00m to 66.06m before saving his best for last and moving up to fourth place with a throw of 67.02m in the final round.

His previous personal best for the discus throw was 66.15m, which he achieved in Queensland last month.

M. Denny boasted, “I came in good shape, and the crazy thing for me was that I knew I had big throws there.”

Not Only Have I Never Thrown So Far Before, But My 67 Was Also Not a Complete Success.

I knew I had made a decent shot when I hit it. I had a feeling it would turn out better.

I waited what seemed like forever to find out. I really need a couple of gins to feel better about the fact that I was only slightly off.

It’s Painful To Have Come So Close To Changing The Course of History.

This achievement was a huge improvement from his sixth-place finish at the 2019 world championships in Doha and the best ever by an Australian male discus thrower at the Olympic level.

To M. Denny, “it was enjoyable, to me it was like a clinic,” he explained.

When I started hitting, I didn’t stop. I committed no fouls and came through time and time again.

“It showed me that I can deliver when the stakes are high.

I’m very disappointed that I couldn’t locate what I was seeking. However, I will return home with the knowledge that “there is more to come.”

Strongman from Sweden, Daniel Stahl, lived up to his status as a pre-event favourite by winning the Olympic gold medal with a throw of 68.90 metres.

Other Swedes Simon Pettersson (67.39m) and Lukas Weisshaidinger (Austria) won bronze medals (67.07m).

After the first flurry of excitement died down, M. Denny’s interview with Channel 7 became a bit more conventional, although he still put on quite a show.

When he won gold in Delhi in 2010, it was Australia’s first medal in any Commonwealth Games event since Benn Harradine in 1998.

As he took a deep breath, M. Denny exclaimed, “That was my finest competition ever, consistency and just delivering – I am ecstatic.”

Even though I started to tyre on the final turn, it was my fastest 300-meter dash ever.

If I want to improve my performance, I need to work on my finishing kick.
