Daniel silver at European Championships

European Championships final was held tonight in Berlin - 36 degrees was a brutal weather conditions for the big discus throwers.

Daniel Stahl won the silver medal with 68.23m throw. Daniel started the meet with a foul, then had a 68.02m throw and it was legitimate throw. But the head judge decided to count it as a foul many minutes after the throw. That of course influenced the meet a lot, as Daniel had to go to third round with two fouls. He managed to save the day with 64.20m throw and then on 4th round took the lead with 68.23m. He had 2 fouls in 5th and 6th. Andrius Gudzius took the gold in the last round 68.46m.

Simon Pettersson was competing in his second major championships final today - he started with a great 65.70m throw, but fouled it. He then had 63.00 in the 2nd and that secured place in top 8. Simon improved to 4th position in the 6th round with 64.55m, just half a meter from bronze. Huge day for Simon!

Fanny Roos had a though day today in Berlin - she ended up with 17.09m and 11th position in the final.
