Davies Clinches Sixth Straight World Shot Put Championship.

On the last day of the World Para Athletics Championships in Japan, British athlete Aled Davies secured his sixth consecutive F63 shot put title.

In a remarkable display of skill, Aled Davies, representing Great Britain and Northern Ireland, claimed his sixth consecutive F63 shot put title at the World Para Athletics Championships in Japan. 

His teammate Nathan Maguire added to the squad's success by securing a bronze medal in the men's T54 800m event, contributing to the team's impressive haul of 12 medals overall.

Davies, now a 10-time world champion, celebrated his 10th world title during the championships. His throw of 15.60m outshined his competitors, including Iran's Faisal Sorour, who finished second.

Reflecting on his achievement, Davies expressed his astonishment, stating, "It is crazy to think I have 10 world titles, and six consecutive shot put titles. No one has ever done that in the field." 

The Welsh athlete, who turned 33 during the championships, highlighted that his focus now shifts to the upcoming Paralympic Games, indicating that his success at the World Championships has set him up well for the prestigious event.
