Halle, Day 2

After a great first day at Halle on Saturday Fanny Roos and Jakob Gardenkrans competed on the second day. Fanny won the U23 competition in shot put and had 17.51m that was fine. She is still not finding the timing in the throw but it will come soon as she is coming out of a very hard training period, but the win was important.

Jakob Gardenkrans was unlucky to get 9th in the U23 meet and then only got three throws. His final result was 54.36m that is also fine. Jakob just needs to let the time go and develop as he has been doing and this was a good experinece for him even that we all know he can a little better. I was proud of Jakob how he acted and how he took it after the meet to go on. Great job.
