Nick and Kristo National Champions

Nick Percy won the Scottish Championships in discus yesterday with a 59.92m throw. Again Nick was throwing in the rain and really did not his it as well as he did in the pouring rain in Manchester few days ago when he threw 61.10m. Still, a good win for Nick and he has now thrown many meets around 60m and over and his average is better than ever, great stability and we are waiting on the big throw. Maybe it will come in his last meet of the year coming up soon The British Championships.

Kristo Galeta won the Estonian Championships in Tallinn in the shot put this weekend with a Championship Record of 19.96m. Kristo has also showed great stability this season and his average of the top 10 meets in this season is over 20m. Comparing that he had a PB of 20.13m last season that is outstanding improvement. Kristo will compete in the meet in Pärnu in Estonia on the 24th and after that come over here to Växjö 
on a short camp before going back for a meet in Tallinn on the 31st.

Congratulations to Nick and Kristo.
