Marcus Thomsen in Helsingborg

Marcus Thomsen the young shot putter (born 1998) from Norway came by for the second time this winter at the beginning of the year. Marcus had a great four day camp with us and improved a lot.

In 2016 he threw the 6kg shot 20.30m and already now at New Year he did a meet with the 7.26kg and threw 18.29m that is 60 feet even.

Marcus is developing fast and will probably throw much farther indoor with both implements.

Down under are some videos from training with Marcus.
