    Tom Walsh expects the nerves to creep in as he embarks on a second consecutive world title

    Tom Walsh expects the nerves to creep in as he embarks on a second consecutive world title


    The Kiwi shotputter breezed through the qualifiers at the athletics World Championships with a throw of 21.92 metres, more than a metre over the required mark.

    Walsh says going into the qualifiers he was calm, but for tomorrow morning's final, it will be a different story.



    Walsh will be joined by compatriot Jacko Gill in the final from 5:05am.

    Camille Buscomb has the 5000 metres final at 6:25am.
