Päivi Alafrantti (FIN) NM Q

: All three attempts from Päivi Alafrantti were initially voided. In the only measurable throw, the javelin landed flat. After a protest of the Finnish team officials and video inspection, the decision was reverted because it could be shown that the tip of the javelin striked the ground first, and Alafrantti was admitted to compete in the final.[4][5][6][7]


According to an unofficial count, 19 athletes from 10 countries participated in the event.
