A great win for Marcus

Marcus Thomsen NOR put the shot 20.67m in the Nordic Junior Match that was held in Umeå, Sweden this past weekend. This meet is a National meet between the Nordic Countries (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland).

The performance was a new meet record. This summer Marcus has had an outstanding season so far with the 6kg ball and this meet was just one of many that he has thrown over 20m this year. To remember is of course his European U20 title that he won in Grossetto, Italy earlier on this summer when he threw 21.36m.

Marcus has two more meets to go this season and the next one is coming up in Norway on Sunday when he will throw the 7.26kg shot in the Norwegian Championships.
