Daniel athlete of the year and Vésteinn coach of the year

Daniel Ståhl was the big winner of the Swedish Athletics Awards held last week in Stockholm. Daniel was nominated in five categories and won three of these.
He got awards for the best performance in Foksam Grand Prix, 71.29m. He got the prize for the best performance in the National Team 69.19m at the London WC.
Then he was chosen the Athlete of the Year in Swedish Athletics.

Fanny Roos was nominated in two categories and Simon Pettersson as well but they did not get chosen this time. Still, a big honor for both of them.
Simon was also chosen the 7th best athlete and got on the Top 10 list for the first time.

Vésteinn Hafsteinsson was then chosen the Coach of the Year.
