The two-time shot put world champion David Storl has proven its very good shape at Schönebecker Sole Cup. Finally, it is time for David Storl to shine. It is the best season of the youngstar Storl who already won twice the World Championships. Everyone knows that Storl has the best season start this year with massive throws over 21m. But what he did today was impressive. He tossed the 7.26kg ball to 21,90m, a new personal best. Also we all know that he always does a new personal best at the major championships. So everyone should expect a massive 22m toss at the upcoming 2014 European Championships in Zurich, Switzerland.
The women’s hammer event was surprisingly good for the upcoming hammer thrower Carolin Paesler. She improved her personal best to 70,76m which is also the b qualification standard for the European Championships. Peasler is only 4cm short of the A qualification standard for the European Championships. But even with the b qualification standard she can be certain (hopefully) that she will be nominated. In absence of Betty Heidler, Kathrin Klaas on the other hand won the competition with another great throw of 73,08m.
That is amazing. I totally freaked out and cannot think straight anymore.
I had a exhausting trianing week and my legs were a bit tired. That’s why I cannot complain about my distance.
David Storl tossed his massive new PB during the third attempt. Before that 21,14m were in the lists. During the third attempt Storl was putting everything he had into the toss and succeeded. The ball flew 21,90m which was a new meeting record and which also means the second spot on the 2014 top list. David improved his personal best by 4cm. As we all know that David is good to throw a personal best at major championships everyone is looking out for the European Championships. He will throw the ball over 22m, Throwholics is quite sure about it.
I did not expect to throw that far. I planned to throw 21,50m due to my heavy trianing week.
Tobias Dahm placed second with 19,38m and Christian Jagusch tossed the ball only cm shorter than Dahm.
The German hammer thrower Alexander Ziegler is getting close to the qualification standard for the European Championships. He threw the hammer 76,29m and missed the qualification standard of 77,50m by roughly 1m. Ziegler is quite sure he will be able to throw the qualification standard soon. Throwholics wishes all the best for him to do so.
The men’s discus event was once again won by the Olympic, World and European Champion Robert Harting. He threw 67,29m during the last attempt. The youngstar Wierig threw 65,98m and placed second. Markus Münch placed third with 64,30m.
I always like to throw in Schönebeck and I love the crowed. Thanks to the audience.
Nadine Müller won the womens discus competition with 62,71m, followed by Julia Fischer 62,26m and Kristin Pudenz 58,20m. Nadine and Julia are both not in their best shape right now due to their poor health. But both are certain they will be back on track for the European Championships.
Since the competition in Eugene, USA I have troubles with my back. Due to that I have some difficulties to go full power. My aggressiveness is missing and I hope I can get it back soon.
I’m on the way back but I’m still not free of pain yet. I’m glad that I survived the competition.
