Cuban discus thrower Yaime Perez won the IAAF Diamond League women's title here Friday with an impressive 65m final throw, defeating Croatian six-time defending champion Sandra Perkovic.

Perkovic seemed on her way to another triumph after reaching 64.31m on her first throw in front of 40,000 people at King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels.

But on the sixth and final throw, the Croat saw herself surpassed by both Perez and Brazil's Andressa de Morais, who posted a distance of 64.65m.

Perkovic's first defeat in 13 months stopped her from equaling French pole-vaulter Renaud Lavillenie with seven Diamond League titles.
