Tough day in Turku

Daniel Ståhl fouled all his three throws in the Turku meet yesterday after throwing very far in the warm up throws. This happens and unfortunately it happened Daniel yesterday. Nothing to do but accept the situation and go on to next meet that will be Rabat DL 
on the 16th of June.

Martin Kupper got 8th in the meet yesterday with 61.55m and was disconnected with the discus and had a pretty bad meet. Simon Pettersson never got going and got 9th with 58.20m. This was one of the worst meets ever for the GT Group discus throwers and we could not see that coming really, but things happen and we learn from it and keep on.

Fanny Roos was 5th in the shot put competition with 18.29m throw and fouled her last throw that was over her PB so not to bad for her.

What we take from this meet is crazy capacity for Daniel in the warmup and a fouled PB by Fanny. We have to look at these positive things. But, we have to understand also that sometimes we do bad and we cannot take things for granted no matter how good we are. Accept the situation and remember that this is only sports and we are privileged to be able to do it.
