Jakob throws a new personal record

The super talented Jakob Gardenkrans threw a new PB of 57.96m in Helsingborg, Sweden at the annual meet Öresundsspelen. Jakob threw very well in the meet and his technique and speed and power clicked well yesterday.

Simon Pettersson won the meet with 63.00m and was not happy, felt he could more but still a good result for Simon.

Marcus Thomson threw the 6kg shot and did well also with a 20.36m throw.

This was the last meet for Jakob and Marcus before they go to ECU23 and UCU20 coming up in the next two weeks.

We wish them all best of luck and congratulate Jakob on his new PB.

PS We do not have any films from the meet.
