Spotakova retains title - London 2012 - Athletics

Czech Barbora Spotakova won the final gold medal of the evening at the Olympic Stadium, successfully defending her Javelin Throw title with a best effort of 69.55m.

Each of the 31-year-old's first four throws were over 66m and would have been good enough for victory, with Germany's Christina Obergfoll taking silver with 65.16m. Germany's Linda Stahl claimed bronze with a season's best of 64.91m in the fourth round.
