Cited among the chances of medals for the French athlete in Munich, Quentin Bigot failed to grab the podium in the hammer competition.

The 2019 vice-world champion only finished seventh in the competition on Thursday, in difficult weather conditions.

A month after his fourth place at the Worlds in Eugene (United States), the 29-year-old athlete, physically diminished, has never been in the tone of the competition, with a better late throw at 77.48 m.

Postponed by several minutes because of a storm, the competition took place partly in the rain, Bigot having visibly difficulty in adjusting in the throwing cage.

Polish Olympic champion Wojciech Nowicki won European gold with a huge throw of 82.00m, the best world performance of the year.

He beat the Hungarian Bence Halasz (80.92 m, personal best) and the Norwegian Olympic vice-champion Eivind Henriksen (79.45 m).

World champion in Eugene for the fifth time in his career, the Polish Pawel Fajdek had to settle for fourth place (79.15 m).
