Fanny breaks the Swedish Indoor Record

Fanny Roos along with Mesud Pezer, Marcus Thomsen and Kristo Galeta competed today in Spåret 100 competition in the Sätra Hall in Stockholm.

Fanny broke the Swedish Record indoors that she had with Helena Engman, 18.13m. Today she broke it first in the second throw when she had 18.27m and then in the fifth throw she improved it again to 18.33m. This was a great start for Fanny even if we know she can do much better as she has thrown like a half a meter farther in practice on our training camp in South Africa. But, training is training and meets are meets, this is great for Fanny and we congratulate her on having on her own now both outdoor 18.68m and indoor 18.33m Swedish Records.

Mesud Pezer won the men´s meet with a decent 20.57m that is similar what he has been doing lately. This was the fourth meet and the results have been 20.64, 20.58, 20.70 and 20.57m. He can do so much more and I am sure it will come soon.

Marcus Thomsen got second behind Mesud also with a decent 20.08. His third meet in a row over 20m and nothing to feel bad about even he was half a meter from his PB. Marcus lacked little feeling and speed to day but I am also sure for him that here is more to come soon.

Kristo fouled all his throws and did not get it to work today technically or feeling wise. He will compete in Tartu in Estonia tomorrow and I am sure he will do better.
