He took the lead in his first attempt with a throw of 68.15 meters and then he made his big throw which caused him to win even the reigning Champion Andrius Gudzius from Lithuania who found himself in second place after he did all he could do. Dacres is elated because of his success, as he won a Diamond for breaking the meet record.
