We are again in Chula Vista, USA

For the 14th time I take my GT Group to the best training facility for throwers in the world. Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center is it called now.

Daniel Ståhl, Mesud Pezer, Jakob Gardenkrans, Marcus Thomsen, Fanny Roos and Simon Pettersson are here with me since 4th of April.  Shaun Pickering is with us with his group of athletes as well as usually.

The weather is good, the atmosphere is good, throwing and lifting is good, so not too much to complain about. Mesud and Simon have some pains to deal with and that is much a part of this life and has to be dealt with.

Niklas Arrhenius will join us for participation in two meets soon and our physical therapist will come soon as Arttu Kangas from Finland that will come along also.

Here are some films from throwing and lifting from the first five days of training here at Chula Vista. Enjoy!



"How to Become an Olympic Champion" is a video series by coach Vésteinn Hafsteinsson on example of Discus Throw legend Gerd Kanter. The first video series puts focus on Olympic Lifting for Throwers. Click here for more info.
