Discus thrower Gerd Kanter earned Estonia its second medal of the 2012 Olympics on Tuesday evening, finishing third in the event with a 68.03 meter throw.
The 33-year-old Tallinn native made his best distance on the fifth attempt, but was still short of the 68.27 m achieved by gold medal winner Robert Harting of Germany. Iranian Ehsan Hadadi's 68.18 m throw earned him the silver.
Kanter won gold in Beijing in 2008 with a throw of 68.82 m. His personal best, 73.38 m, is the third longest throw on record.
