Simon and Jakob with two medals each

Simon Pettersson and Jakob Gardenkrans competed this weekend in the Swedish Junior Championships in Hässleholm in Sweden.

Jakob started out yesterday with winning the hammer throw with the 6.0kg hammer and threw 57.13m. Jakob hardly ever trains for this event but likes to compete in it and thinks it is fun to have something else than the discus. Today Jakob threw the discus 1.75kg 59.05m and got second in the meet. He was not happy with that but still not a bad performance for Jakob, he just needs to compete little better under pressure and it will come by time and more experience.

Simon Pettersson had two of his extra events today and totally exploded in both. He won the shot put with a huge PB of 17.77m, his previous SB was 16.98m and his PB since last year was 17.30m. Then he threw the hammer 58.43m and got 3rd in that event that he never really practices. It just shows what kind of a talent Simon is. He throws his main event tomorrow that is the discus and it will be fun to follow.

Great two days so far for both Jakob and Simon.
