Simon throws a PB

Simon Pettersson threw a new PB 62.06m today in a IFK Helsingborg/GT Throwing meet in Helsingborg, Sweden. Even Mesud Pezer threw discus and of course threw a big PB also with 57.08m.

Simon competed today for the 22nd time this year and threw for the 8th time over 60m. He has been struggling a little technically for the last month but it was much better today and he was even close to hit a bigger one. His average is now 59.08m that is good.

Mesud threw the discus for the first time in a meet for many years and had few throws between 55-57m and his farthest measured 57.08m. Fun for him to have a second event and he should be able to throw 60m with little training.

It was super nice to see Viktor Gardenkrans throw his best meet of his life and improve his PB by two meters to 57.78m. Big congratulations to Viktor from all of us.

In the shot it was not as good. Mesud had 19.32m and could not really do what we wanted but we just keep on trying. Simon had 16.61m and Viktor at 17.57m.

We use these meets as training meets to try to get something going in relation to our training and it was nice to see the guys manage to do that today in the discus.
