Personal bests for Marcus

Marcus Thomsen was the first GT Group Athlete to start in 2018 and some he did.  19.57m in his first indoor meet with the 7.26kg ball without hitting it big time. His previous indoor PB was 18.29m since last winter but he did one meet this summer with the heavy shot and had 19.40m then.

Just before the new year ended he also broke his indoor PB with the 6kg and put the it 21.47m but his outdoor PB since this summer is 21.36m. Now the time with the 6kg is over and the 7.26kg is the shot for the young Norwegian. With better technique and few more meets 20m is just around the corner. We congratulate Marcus on outstanding performances both before and after New Year and wish him all the best.
