Jamaicaís Tanto Campbell threw a personal-best but failed to win a medal in the menís F54/55/56 discus final at the London 2012 Paralympic Games today.
The 26-year-old Campbell threw 41.66 metres for fifth place with 972 points.
Cubaís Leonardo Diaz won the gold medal with a world record throw of 44.63 metres.
The silver medal went to Drazenko Mitrovic of Serbia, who threw 32.97 metres, also a world record.
Mitrovic was awarded 1012 points, seven points more than the gold medal winner, because of his higher level of disability.
Ali Mohammad Yari of Iran took the bronze medal with a season-best throw of 41 point 9-8 metres.
Two Jamaicans will be in action tomorrow.
Alphanso Cunningham competes in the menís F51/52/53 discus final, while Sylvia Grant will bow into action for the first time. Grant competes in the womenís F57/58 Javelin Throw final.
The 32-year-old Cunningham won Jamaicaís only medal so far. Cunningham won the gold in the menís F52-53 javelin throw yesterday.
