Adrian Annus added the Olympic gold medal to his European title in the final of the men's hammer throw on Sunday.
The 31-year-old Hungarian recorded 83.19 metres with his third effort to relegate Japan's Koji Murofushi to the silver-medal position.
Murofushi threw 82.91 with his final attempt with Ivan Tikhon of Belarus, the world champion and world leader this year, taking the bronze with 79.81.
Annus is the fifth Hungarian to win the Olympic title.
