Stuart Farquhar comfortably through to the final of the javelin throw

It took just one throw for the Delhi Commonwealth Games javelin silver medallist to qualify for the final of the javelin throw.

Requiring a throw of 78 metres for an automatic qualification, Farquhar nailed it first up with 78.54m.

The 14 times New Zealand champion said it’s a good feeling to get it in that first round.

“It gives you that confidence. I didn’t quite nail it as well as I was hoping but it’s all there and tomorrow’s another comp and I look forward to that,” said Farquhar.

“My body is good and my technique is getting better so I’m hoping to step it up even more tomorrow in the final.

“I just want to win tomorrow,” he added.
