Växjö, sports town of the year in Sweden 2017

The town/city of Växjö in Sweden where we have our headquarters in the GT Group has been chosen the best sports town i Sweden in 2017.
It is the second time in four years the the town gets this award. It is a great honor for the community as well as all the clubs, federations, leaders, coaches and athletes on all levels that live, train and work from here.
I am very happy to live here and be a part of this development and see how much difference it makes for us in our GT Group to have facilities on top level and a good atmosphere to train in. It is the official Swedish Athletic Federation Throwing Center and here we work together to develop throws in Sweden, It is going well and we look forward to the future.

Congratulations to Växjö on the award.
