    Shot putter Tom Walsh, competing in his home town, has extended his own New Zealand residents record in winning the Timaru Super Shot event.

    Shot putter Tom Walsh has produced a record throw to win the Timaru Super Shot event in his home town.

    The world outdoor and indoor champion hit 22.06 metres with his second attempt on Wednesday to extend his own New Zealand residents mark.

    Walsh, whose personal best is 22.31m, prevailed in a six-strong field that included Commonwealth champion O'Dayne Richards of Jamaica and two-time world indoor champion Ryan Whiting of the United States.

    The event was the first in a three-meet series, which continues on Friday with The Big Shot in Christchurch.
