Cameroonian-born Portuguese athlete becomes world shooter

Cameroonian-born Portuguese athlete, Auriol Dongmo holds the world shot put indoor record with a throw of 19.90 and the Olympic fourth-placer added the outdoor equivalent to her list of accolades with a fourth round throw of 19.68m, only seven centimetres shy of her Portuguese outdoor record. Given the inclement weather on offer on the first day of the European Throwing Cup, Dongmo put together an eye-catching series with all four valid efforts in excess of the 19 metre-line. The record holder in the years past, represented her native Cameroon but later transferred her eligibility to Portugal in 2020.
