Jakob wins the Swedish U23 Championships

Jakob Gardenkrans had probably his best meet ever yesterday when he won the Swedish U23 Championships in the discus in Gävle in Sweden.

Jakob threw the discus 56.93m and won the meet and beat some very good throwers that are older than him to win the Swedish title.

Jakob has had a very good year so far and develops all the time and his PB is 57.96m and in the ECU23 Championships earlier this year he was 8cm away from making the final. Still he has two more years to go in that class so no stress.

In the pas Jakob has had a hard time performing when it counts but for the last two years he has improved a lot on that mental issue. And yesterday he showed it when he won the meet.

Big win and a good throw for Jakob and we congratulate him and a job well done.
