We are in Birmingham at World Indoor Championships

Global Throwing team arrived yesterday to chilly Birmingham to take part at the IAAF World Indoor Championships - our athletes participating are Fanny Roos in women shot and Mesud Pezer in men shot. Supporting team is Coach Vésteinn Hafsteinsson, manager Hans Üürike and consultant Shaun Pickering. Well, we are used to cold weather in the Nordic Countries but this -5 degrees here in Birmingham is extraordinary - even the training hall today was freezing cold for some throwers.

So today we had an official training on the competition circle - both Mesud and Fanny were feeling good.

Fanny will compete on Friday and Mesud on Saturday.

Here are some pictures from today!
