Big day for Fanny in Växjö

We all knew it would come sooner rather than later as the training has been going so well. Fanny Roos improved her indoor PB with 68cm today in the Swedish Indoor Championships in Växjö, Sweden. Her new PB is 17.88m and that is even 30cm farther than her outdoor PB since last summer.

Fanny had a great series today: 17.30, 17.36, 17.88, 17.37, 17.60 and 17.63. This performance today puts Fanny in 8th place in Europe on the indoor list. As we know the European Championships are coming up in Belgrade next weekend. Two years ago in that meets Fanny threw the shot 16.69m and got 10th.

We all congratulate Fanny on her big new personal best.

Daniel Ståhl won the men’s competition as expected but had a very hard time getting the grip on the shot in the start; still even that he only got one decent throw in 19.47m is his second best performance in the shot. In Finland two weeks ago Daniel had 19.60m. Now, he will stop with shot this indoor season and concentrate on two discus meets in Växjö indoor next weekend and then the EAA Winter Throwing up in Las Palmas in two weeks.

Simon Pettersson improved his indoor PB from 16.72m to 17.61m enough to get 3rd in the meet and get the bronze medal. His outdoor PB is 17.83m but today Simon competed tremendously and we congratulate him on an outstanding meet.

Of course both Daniel and Simon mostly throw discus so both did really well today in their B event.
