Tom Walsh has revelled in the company he's shared at the latest Diamond League track and field event in Glasgow.

Two weeks out from the Commonwealth Games and at the same venue, the young Kiwi shot putter has finished third with a throw of 21.23 metres.

It's Walsh's best ever throw outdoors and he's finished just behind the world champion, David Storl.

He says it's always good when you're close to someone like that and he's delighted to have beaten the double Olympic gold medallist Tomasz Majewski twice.

Walsh rounds out his Commonwealth Games preparations with an event later this week in the Czech Republic.
