Walcott threw 83.55 metres to pick up silver, the Trinidad and Tobago athlete surrendering his title to Anderson Peters, the Grenadian landing the spear 87.31m to establish a new Games record. And with St Lucia's Albert Reynolds claiming bronze with a personal best 82.19m, a new chapter of history was written.
