Jakob just throws and throws

Jakob Gardenkrans was very unlucky after his successful meet in Las Palmas one month ago where he threw a new PB with the 2kg discus of 56.83m. For three weeks he was sick and could almost not train at all and lost lot of weight. Lately Jakob has been working very hard and we just decided to try to get as many throws in as possible to get back the feeling he had and do the job in the weight room. It has been getting better and Jakob has had a great working ethic to get back and he is close now.

Here are some of his hundreds of throws that he has done for the last two weeks or so.
