The Iranian topped Group A with 65.21m. Robert Harting from Germany finished in the second place with throw of 64.93 m followed by two-time Olympic gold medalist Virgilijus Alekna from Lithuania with 64.21m.

"I am satisfied with my performance in the event. I was sure I can advance to the final. I want to do my best on Tuesday to get gold. Of course, anybody cannot predict as you see Usain Bolt was eliminated from the 100-meter final," Hadadi said.

About 2000 athletes from 203 countries participate in the 13th IAAF World Championships in Athletics in Daegu, South Korea. The event will finish on September 4.
