Training PB for Fanny

Another great day here yesterday and even this morning all the athletes are improving more or less in one way or the other all the time.

Yesterday Fanny threw a training PB with 24cm and is getting close to 18m but for your information is the Swedish indoor record 18.13m and the outdoor record is 18.17m. Helena Engman broke these records few years ago and Fanny is getting closer to them every day.

Still, it could take some time and maybe even until next year until she breaks these records if everything goes well. But this year the big goal is to qualify for the WC in London where the qualification standard is 17.75m and Fanny threw over that yesterday in practice.

Daniel and Simon joined here in the shot put practice for fun and then this morning Fanny threw some discus for fun.

Some films down under.
