Fanny Roos joins Global Throwing Group

Always at this time of the year some changes happens in our training group due to that some people are about to finish up their career or go another way and then some young an upcoming ones join our group.

Fanny Roos from Ljungby in Sweden is the first young one that joins the GT Group this year. Fanny is 21 years old shot putter that has thrown 17.58m this year. She has been working with Per Karlsson for years and their cooperation has resulted in great development for Fanny from year to year. PK has now decided to quit coaching elite athletes due to personal reasons and Fanny contacted us then to take over.

I am very excited to work with Fanny and through the years I have consulted her and PK a bit and she has been training pretty much with us both in Växjö and also abroad on training camps. She works very hard and has a bright future and should be a candidate to break the Swedish Record in the shot put within some time and be a top eight finisher in any championship in the future.
