It is going well

It has been while since we wrote last time on this site and is that due to some organizational changes, technical difficulties and uncertainty in how we go on in GT. It is getting clearer now and we will continue to work with coaching and management for throwers worldwide as we have been doing for years.

The fall has been great in relation to training for our athletes.

Daniel Ståhl is really focused after his big success at the end of the season and has had his best training fall ever and is throwing so much better than he has been doing at this time of the year before.

Simon Pettersson works on and is in great condition both physically and mentally and is also throwing really well. There is nothing more really to add there but he just keeps on getting better.

Fanny Roos our newest member has been working with us for 12 weeks now and has taken some big steps forward physically and technically lately and it is nice to see. It looks great for Fanny and she fits well into our training system and the GT Group.

Jakob Gardenkrans has moved mountains this fall I developing his technical level and is getting ready to throw really far in the spring and summer. He has totally exploded also in the weight room so some huge things happening there.

All the above have been training on a daily or weekly base with me in Helsingborg or Växjö as they are all Swedish and in one way or another close by. The ‘’foreigners’’ of the team Mesud Pezer and Leif Arrhenius are also fine.

Mesud is in Croatia on training camp now and struggling a little with his physical status at the moment but developing technically day by day and he will probably be fine.

Leif is training much less than before and working full time and we will see how he will go on but life goes on and sometimes at this age it is good to train less and throw farther.

Two of our athletes from the 2016 GT Group have stopped with us at least for some time. As said before Niklas Arrhenius is figuring out what he will do in the future and Tim Nedow will go another way at least for a while. I and Tim did not agree on how to go forward and that is fine. I want to wish Niklas and Tim all the best in the future.

There are possible new members coming into the group and it will be clear at New Year.

Down under are some throwing videos from this fall.
