Simon throws far in the discus

Yesterday we told you about Simon’s new PB’s in his second events shot put and hammer in the Swedish U23 Championships. Today he threw the discus and wow, 63.10m he ended up with. That is a PB with over one meter as his previous best was 62.06m since two weeks ago.

It has been hanging in the air for a while that he would throw around this distance due to all his good throws in training and meets where he has not really hit it but still thrown pretty far but not very far. This throw, over 63m is very far for Simon even if I think there is till one meter more in there if he wants to.

Nobody deserves this more; Simon has worked really hard for the last few years and is obviously on his way up there to be a top thrower. This weekend for him was unbelievable and he ended up winning two events and one bronze in the meet and threw personal records in all the disciplines.

BIG Congratulations to Simon on this huge performance.
