Australia's Barber wins world championships gold in dramatic javelin final

  The moment the javelin left Kelsey-Lee Barber's hand in the concluding round of the world championships final in Doha, she knew it was a very big throw.

Watching from the nearby grandstand, her coach and husband Mike Barber knew it too.

In the most highly pressured moment of her sporting career, Barber produced the second-biggest throw of her life, a huge 66.56m effort that vaulted her from fourth place to first to become Australia's first javelin world champion.
