Reigning World Outdoor champion Christian Cantwell became the first man ever to win three World Indoor shot put gold medals tonight. Cantwell shot into the lead with his first effort of 21.60m/70-10.5 but lost it in the fifth round when Andrei Mikhnevich (BLR) threw 21.68m/71-1.5. Cantwell responded on his last throw of the competition with an effort of 21.83m/71-7.5 and the Belarussian was unable to respond. Cantwell has now won the 2004, 2008 and 2010 World Indoor titles
