It seems that the conditions in Wiesbaden, Germany are incredible right now.
First we have seen three qualification standards for the U23 European Championships by Germans Michael Salter, David Wrobel and Benedikt Stienen. But what’s happening now with the U23 women competition is insane. 20-year old Gu Siyu, who arrived in Europe with a personal best of 60.93m (199′ 10″), improved by almost 7m (22′ 11″)!!! The Chinese youngster dropped a bomb at 67.86m (222′ 7″)!!!
The U20 World Champion from Barcelona, Anna Rüh, underlines her extremely good shape with a massive personal best of 64.33m (211′). This is now the 2nd time in her short 2013 season that she has thrown beyond the Moscow World Championships “A” standard.
Kristin Pudenz improved her previous best by almost 2m (6′ 6″) to an useful 59.74m (195′ 11″). This means also the qualification standard for the U23 European Championships in Tampere, Finnland.
Now the “actual” woman main event is scheduled. Let’s see what will happen there. Maybe we will see 70m (229′ 7″) by Nadine Müller??
Throwholics will keep you posted!
