After an elboy injury in last June it had become very quiet around U23 European Champion Till Wöschler. Finally Till is painless and getting in shape on Cyprus. Before he can concentrate on the World Championships qualification standard he has to move and change his training squad.
Till Wöschler is going to attend the University of Cologe for his sport studies and therefore, he will join the training squad of Helge Zöllau for weight training sessions. He is one of the best throwing coaches in Germany. His squad includes hammer thrower Markues Essen and Kathrin Klaas. Also javelin bronze medailist Linda Stahl and Katharina Molitor are trained by Helge.
Matthias Brockelt, who is currently the coach of Till will continue coaching him: “I will continue to work with Matthias Brockelt on my technical issues”, said Till Wöschler.
The schedule for summer is clear: “The stated goal for the season is the World Championships in Moscow, Russia,” said Till Wöschler. He was free of pain for some time and could go through his training program without any set backs. Also an eight-week training course for the military has less affected his shape than feared.
In 2010 Till Wöschler became surprisingly the U20 World Champion with a new German record of 82.52m (270′ 8″) which also saved him the IAAF rising star award. The following year he won the U23 European Championships with 84.38m (276′ 10″). Then the javelin talent was slowed down from multiple injuries. Hence, he wishes for 2013 only one thing: “That I stay healthy and be able to throw and show my performance without any pain.”
