The Czech javelin thrower Barbora Špotáková made the perfect return to international athletics after maternity leave with a first place finish at a Diamond League meeting in Rome on Thursday evening. The reigning Olympic champion, who is 32, did not take part in any major events last year after giving birth to her first child. Špotáková topped the podium in Rome with a throw of 66.43 metres, more than three metres ahead of her nearest rival.
