Usually at the end of the season in Sweden we do Castorma. It is when throwers compete in shot, javelin, discus and hammer and get points for each event from a specific scoring table.

Today Fanny Roos and Simon Pettersson did it in Uppsala, Sweden. Both did new personal records.

Fanny: Shot 18.01m, javelin 39.43m, discus 52.40m, hammer 54.43m = 3.725 points

Simon: Shot 17.50m, javelin 57.37m, discus 62.02m, hammer 54.04m = 3.591 points

Great day for both Fanny and Simon. They will do it again in Växjö, Sweden on Saturday. After that Fanny is going into her rest period of 3-4 weeks and Simon will have his last meet in Tallinn at Gerd Kanter meet on 13th September.
