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.






European Shot Put Conference takes place in Tallinn, Estonia from 8-10 November 2019 and will be highlighted by lectures and practical demonstrations from some of the most renowned athletes and coaches associated with the event. Click here for programme and registration info.
